Beltangady: Gang assaults staff of hotel owned by local BJP leader, six arrested

Daijiworld Media Network - Beltangady

Beltangady, Jan 24: Beltangady police on Sunday January 24 arrested six persons for allegedly barging into a hotel owned by a local BJP leader and assaulting the staff.

The arrested have been identified as Ajit Kumar, Arun Kumar, Nitish, Ashith Kumar, Parameshwar and Naveen.

The Empire hotel where the assault took place is owned by a leader of Ujire BJP minority cell.

On the night of Saturday January 23, the accused allegedly lay in wait for a person named Mohammed Altaf, a staff at the hotel, who was returning after delivering a parcel from the hotel. As soon as they saw him returning, they pounced on him, but he managed to escape and run towards the hotel. They chased him, barged into the hotel and assaulted him, it is alleged.

Sub-inspector Nandakumar and personnel rushed to the spot immediately and took necessary precautionary measures. Some locals tried to prevent the hooligans from damaging the hotel, it is said.

Sources said that the gang had visited the hotel a week ago as well and quarrelled with the staff. It is said that Saturday's incident was a result of this quarrel.

Beltangady police have registered a case against 15 persons, out of whom six have been arrested. The rest will be arrested soon based on CCTV footage, police sources said.

    For me this looks like a religion problem?All these guys are Hindus,victim is a muslim .what was the reason to attack him?

    Should have a reason simply to assault.was he previously somewhere in a gang and done something.Anyway these useless boys make them to work in jail without food and water till their fat pressure comes down.or let them work in that hotel under police control to wash the plates till the loss is filled.

    They want to be rowdies and hence have developed with the similar attire.... They think that with Gundaism they can survive for a longer period, but no, they will succumb sooner as rowdies life is always miserable... These are misguided lads..... In yesteryear's when any misguided youth used to be found, the elders be it family or others used to guide them, but not such situation now... Unfortunately these days right wing parties and leaders need such guys for their benefit... Today's movies especially south Indian portray Gundas as heroes and will survive any type of attack.... But unfortunately these youngsters follow such path thinking such movies and actors as their role model...

    Belthangadi in olden days used to be a quiet under developed area. Beginning of Charmady ghats where most of the vehicles break their journey to have hot tea or meals to climb the ghat section. Now a days the junction is having lots of robberies, frauds, cattle robberies etc .

    What a sorry state a typical town in India has descended to! A robber, a thug and a criminal or any one can cite political reasons but their act is dangerous. No one in the society has the right to rob or use violence against others. It is a criminal act and police must act and if accused parties found guilty , should be punished severely as a deterrent to others!

    Citizens should cooperate with the police in their efforts to catch these criminals and punish them. Congratulations for assisting the police!8750
