Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru

Mangaluru, May 13: The police have registered a suo motu case in connection to the assault on a 'Daiva Patri' by a group who accused him of being 'gay'.

Lokesh Poojary, the victim, was assaulted and his hair forcibly chopped off by a group including women for allegedly engaging in 'homosexual activity'. The group also forcibly removed his 'Daiva' bangle.

Videos and photographs of the incident had gone viral and many had expressed anger over the assault.

However, despite the video going viral and the grave nature of the assault, no one came forward to file complaint.

Taking serious note of the incident, the Barke police registered a suo motu case against the accused.

The police also warned that nobody should take law into their hands.

    When his family does not have any problem, who are these so called pure bhakts goondas to judge him. All these things happen because the general public only look at the tamasha and do not take immediate steps to stop it. It encourages these few.

    Much praise is due to the Police - any citizen regardless of his/her gender and sexual orientation does
    NOT deserved to be DE-HUMANIZED - especially by the MOB!

    If the find sexual orientation is offensive - REPORT TO THE POLICE - Taking LAW into their hand for their AGENDA is UN-LAWFUL!

    They deserve Harshest Punishment allowed BY LAW!
    KUDOS to THE POLICE DELIGENCE and SWIFT ACTION.
    GOONDAGIRL belongs to the HISTORY BOOKS!

    Self when one sees this picture ,it pains to see how this man suffers.People are on him lying and catch hold of him and his hair as though he is wild animal and ready to slaughter.Hope he is not very much injured.Not only that they have taken video and circulated too.When it comes hard one can file a case against the one send video without his concent.These who made him to suffer and cut his hair should be punished hard .I am not sure if this person one day take revenge on them.(If he survives)All these old believers of gay haters ,should come to sense.The gay people are not blessed like we ,with normal harmones,that we have to accept.Even in animals too we find such species.so please leave all to them self and mind your business for Gods sake self. First see what you do is good or bad,then check others.Let one throw the stone first who didnt sinn,before he throw to others.Did the "Gay" person force you at all?

    probably this daiva patri has done some thing illegal, that is, sex with minor, or sex without consent, or sex without the conscious willingness of the victim...if this was not the case, this man himself would have filed a police complaint against this inhuman attack and punishment by crowd
