Mangaluru: Police, villagers close three border roads with mud to prevent intruders from Kerala

Mangaluru, Mar 25: Konaje on the outskirts of the city has many inner roads which can be accessed to go to Kerala. Though the police force is guarding some roads, many vehicles escape from them from interior roads. So the villagers and police officials took emergency action and closed three inner roads by pouring mud on them using JCB machines on Wednesday, March 25, to prevent the vehicles from Kerala approaching the city.

From the past four days police are preventing vehicles coming from Kerala to enter the city of Mangaluru. However, some vehicle inmates are giving fictitious reasons to the police and trying to enter the city. That is why the police, with the help of the villagers, closed the access by pouring mud on the roads.

Bakrabailu-Pathur on the road that connects Mangaluru-Vittal, inner road at Sulliame that goes to Mudipu and Hosangadi and Poyathabail road that goes from Mudipu to Daigoli are closed with mud now.

The people of these localities are concerned as the number of Covid-19 infected cases are rising day by day in the neighbouring district of Kasargod of Kerala. So they, along with the police closed these roads.

    I agee. Their govt announces 20,000 crores relief measures , so why they need to come to our state. They claim world class infra, health care etc so it is better them to stay there than putting pressure to our state's infra .State should seal all entry and exit points !!!

    Fayaz emergency vehicles can use regular routes to enter the state . This barricade is only for vehicles entering illegally.

    Excellent -- Better safe than sorry, most cases we see in Mangalore / South Kanara are Gulf returnees, Kasargod seems to be having many cases and the people there don't seem to care. It is sad we are forced to close borders, but this is an extraordinary situation, needing extra ordinary measures.

    There are many inaccessible pathways, which these guys can penetrate and come into Karnataka state.... River crossings in tiny boats is extremely easy, can hoodwink, locals and the police force....These guys caught have to be penalized and prosecuted, only then will this menace cease !!!!!

    Kerala government is all set to tackle all the emergencies....There is no place in hospitals here in Mangalore do you know? Henceforth, citizens of Kerala should encourage your government to build more hospitas, institutions, industries etc and not to keep on calling on for strikes. If every citizen of different different states think same like keralites ...will any state improve? No one wants their area to be polluted....everyone wants Greenery...in the meantime development also..so, dont worry...dont discourage your government...do something.... should begin from you..
