    Usually there is a mastermind , the children are fed by him (expenses 40%, -no relation to contractor scam) , these people come all the way from Madhya Pradesh - Rajasthan -Gujarat border and move from place to place where there are religious festivals.

    Authorities has to investigate regarding the origin of children. We have also seen ladies with small babies begging on streets. We are not sure if the babies are their own. There is a racket of kidnapping babies/children and put them for begging.

    Few years back I observed bunch full of adults and children of foreign origin begging near a temple premises of Mulky. Police personnels were simply observing them. Few days later later same children were begging near St Agnes Church . I felt very sad... don't know where they are coming from and why administration is not taking any action on them lt

    H. Almeida., Bendur/Andheri. Fri, Oct 14 2022 Readers, it will be not be too difficult for the intelligence agencies to track down those culprits behind the begging team .. if this incident is validated, then it raises a huge question mark law abiding citizens in Karnataka... Banning cheedi mind set organizations in future will solve a problem, as the foot soldiers are lying low, just waiting for promised 15 lakh, to begin good life once again !!!
