Bengaluru bomb threat: Police suspect family feud led to letters

Bengaluru, Oct 20 (IANS): In a dramatic turn of events, the Bengaluru police on Tuesday arrested one person and picked up a minor from Tumkuru for allegedly writing separate letters to the City Court judge as well as to Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Sandeep Patil, threatening to eliminate them by planting bombs in their cars.

A family dispute is said to be the primary motive behind the letters, the police said.

According to the police, Rajashekhar, resident of Lingadalli village in Tipaturu taluka, and a minor schoolgoing student who is also his relative from Hagalwadi village in Gubbi taluka in Tumkuru district, are allegedly behind the letter threats.

The police added that Rajashekhar was nursing a grudge against his brother Ramesh for a long time as both were eying a major share in their in-laws' property.

The police added that Rajashekar had married the elder daughter while his brother had married the younger daughter Bhumika of Basavalingappa.

Rajshekhar reportedly opposed Bhumika's marriage to anyone other than him as he reportedly wanted to be the owner of the entire four-acre land owned by Basavalingappa. But, prior to expressing his desire to marry Bhumika, Basavalingappa had looked for a groom for her and selected Ramesh.

Ever since this marriage took place, Rajashekhar had been using one or the other trick to fix Ramesh and Basavalingappa in some cases in order to take away the entire property, the police claimed.

The police further added that Rajashekahr had been using minor schoolgoing children to write anonymous letters to police in Tumkuru and even the local police had warned him not to indulge in such activities as it would ruin the children's future.

The police arrested him last night as they sensed that the threat letter appears to be written by a novice as the letter ended with a note that this was a warning from "Jaishree Mohammed from Pakistan" instead of Jaish-e-Mohammed, the banned Pakistani terrorist group active in Jammu & Kashmir.

Speaking to reporters Bengaluru City police commissioner Kamal Pant said, "the police had created three special teams to nab the culprits soon after the letter was received and we arrested them before dawn.

    There are many Jaishree Mohammed groups are active in India now. Why don't some jobless people instead of roaming around cows, make some arrangement to send these anti nationals to Pakistan or China?

    Does this man Rajashekar do something for a living ?? Wants a wife, and then her parent's property too ?? Has he ever worked as something to earn his basic necessities ??

    It is sad and disappointing to observe that things are moving in the wrong direction and the family matters need to be sorted out by The Police Department. Senior Police Officers have adequate responsibilities and jobs to attend to and these trivial matters should be sorted out by people amicably and reasonably.

    I have known Mr. Sanjiv Patill for some time now and one can be sure that he will render justice without any reservations.
