Kundapur, Mar 26: Police arrested one person in the taluk for violating the curfew norms of countrywide lock down against coronavirus pandemic.

The arrested youth is identified as Vishwanath Bhat (21), a resident of Uppinakudru of the taluk. He is a second year engineering student.

The accused Vishwanath Bhat was not covering his face with mask. The police on rounds questioned him about this when he was coming from Moodlukatte. The accused who got angry by the questioning of the police had approached the police station to file a complaint. But the personnel at the police station asked Vishwanath Bhat to go home as there is lock down everywhere. It is said that Vishwanath got further angered by the fact that his complaint was not taken by the police station personnel.

It is alleged that from the police station, Vishwanath Bhat went straight to Shastri Cirlce of the town and had a verbal spat with the police on duty. Later when he threatened the police personnel saying that he will make a call to the DC and give complaint against the police, sub-inspector Harish who was at the spot swung his lathi on him. He was arrested immediately on the orders of assistant commissioner Raju K, who was standing beside SI Harish.

A case under section 353 (obstruction to duty) is registered against the accused. It is learnt that Bhat, who was studying engineering in Bengaluru, was going to his house from his grandmother’s house.

    Anyone wants to go out to fill the prescription or buying food is allowed under the order. Is there any mechanism to check the reason for going out by the police.? A text message or email from the Pharmacy, food store, hospital may be helpful in avoiding the unnecessary beatings and humiliating punishment. Police should collect a copy of electronic document for future reference.

    The arrest is not at all justified. I have seen the video the boy had a doctors perception. These police are definitely ill-behaved. He has not broken any law and there is no guidelines from the government to wear mask, you wont find the recommended N95 mask anywhere. The cop should be suspended from duty right away, no questions asked.
    This is all because of F*ku, if he had stopped the movement of direct flights to India on time we would not see this day today.

    Ppl who are commenting freely here should check the video once and then comment.. The young boy is beaten directly without proper questioning. If the same thing happens to you, your children and your parents.. Will u be quiet? The video continues and another man is beaten up

    You also need to understand, he is not supposed to be outside the house during lock down/section 144 time.

    He has some slip in hand, probably a medicine prescription which police did consider to have a look before beating

    As per the Section 144, no 5 people can gather at one place. Police should not question single person on road and beat them. Everywhere police is doing extreme. When a person is going alone in bike, police are stopping him and beating him which is wrong.

    This is special government order to stay at home..
    So police can question, and roaming without any valid reason can be punished

    "Lathon ke bhoot baton se nahi maanthe" We Indians only understand the language of "danda" no matter how educated he is. Have we ever seen the situation like this in other effected countries?

    mistake he has done:-
    1. Not wearing mask.
    2. Not maintaining social distance say 2 meters from police.
    3. Going to others house is also offense now... order is to stay at their own home only.

    Bail not granted.😷

    It is not the time to argue with Police , Medical and Paramedical staff.

    Please try to understand the gravity of the situation.

    Police are doing their duty under instructions from their superiors and rulers.

    This is not school or college to teach you the subjects.

    Real life is different. May God bless you to come out of the Law knots created by you.

    He is not a MBBS student, So what he know about covid-19. Whatever books he read for his engineering Covid -19 won't come. If the police ask more questions he will open and show each and every pages to see the word Virus.
    Anyway, young boy take him to his home in police van. let him take his bike after 3 months.

    There isno such obstruction on duty filed by the police. Article 353 or any other section when you are in groups. Single person can go for buy anything. Example : milk, or necessary groceries, medicine etc. Bhat has to file case against police.
