Bantwal, May 27: The tension that prevailed after a youth was stabbed at Kalladka here on Friday May 26 refused to die down on Saturday May 27 too.

The police have imposed Section 144 from May 27 till June 2 in Bantwal taluk.

A group of youths, in protest against the stabbing incident, forcibly closed down shops that had opened in Kallada on Saturday morning, with the result that the town went into an unannounced, total bandh.

Mohammed Hashir, son of Yusuf, a resident of Kalladka, was stabbed by a group of three when he and two others were returning home from the mosque after Friday prayers. The accused have been identified as Mithun, Amit and Yathin. The assailants came in a car and sped away immediately after stabbing Hashir.

Also, another youth was injured in the stone-pelting on May 26 that followed the stabbing incident, it is learnt.

Demanding immediate arrest of the accused, the group on May 27 forcibly downed the shutters of shops and business establishments.

Early morning, two youths from two different communities had a fight, resulting in stone-pelting.
The police intervened and brought the situation under control.

Security has been tightened with deployment of a large number of police personnel, and higher police officials have camped in the area.

    Election is due in the month of December-2017. In Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, and Uttara Kannada districts people vote for religion and not for candidate. In 2014 election there was a riot in Ullal.
    Its very easy for BJP to win election in these three districts. In coming months Hindu Samajotsava will start in all the MLA Constituencies and Final Samajotsava will be held in Nehru Maidan.
    Congress should come out of Anti hindu policies, till then it is a cakewalk for BJP.

    Why this worst than animal behavior in some people??? Devilness is cropping among some of our people so much so that they are not hesitant to do any kind of evil. No proper family guidance, education, social responsibility, personal dignity etc., etc. are the root causes for such behavior. What is the outcome of such crimes? What is the benefit?? Is it not suffering for all common people irrespective of their religion??? Still again and again this kind of fights take place between different groups and we never learn that our human society is deteriorating day after day. There are enough and more difficulties in each one's life. In addition to that these senseless fights disturb the healthy life of society. Every one should respect one's existence and that of another and should do the minimum good one can do instead of committing crimes. The criminals have no place in society. Cast them out. Thank you and God bless each and every one of us.
