Udupi, Mar 2: One person was arrested by police on Tuesday March 2, in connection to the murderous attack on an RTI activist Barkur Shankar Shanti.
The arrested is identified as Barkur Rangankere Praveen Acharya (44). He is PWD contractor by profession. He was taken into custody and produced in the court.
Two teams were formed under two police sub-inspectors at Brahmavar and Hiriyadka police stations.
Police took swift action after Billawara Vedike members staged a protest on Monday.
It may be recalled, some miscreants locked Shankar Shanti in the kitchen of Barkur Kalikamba temple on February 20 and assaulted him mercilessly.
