Mangaluru, Apr 7: Issuing a clarification regarding the suspects arrested in the Koragajja hundi desecration case, police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said that the two people did not confess to doing the crime.
In a case of putting things deemed as unholy into donation boxes of Daivasthanas including the Koragajja shrine here, the police have let the two accused who were arrested to go, after getting bonds executed by them.
Abdul Raheem and Abdul Tausif had come to the Babbuswamy-Koragajja Kshetra at Yemmekere for putting some money into the donation box as a way of showing remorse for their act and seeking to rid them of the ire of the divine. After the people there conveyed information, the police had arrived there, arrested the two and undertaken investigation.
During the questioning, the police could not recover any convincing proof or circumstantial evidence about their involvement. The Pandeshwar police had also undertaken in-depth probe into other incidents in which they were thought to have been involved. As their mobile phone locations did not match and even the pieces of paper found in the donation boxes did not match with their handwriting, the police have come to the conclusion that more time is required for investigation. Therefore they were sent away after getting security bonds executed. The police commissioner said that they will be treated as suspects till evidences are collected. The police said that even though the two confessed to have been involved with helping a person named Nawaz, who is no more, in placing unwarranted things into the donation boxes evidences will be required.
