Bengaluru: Mangaluru firing - Magisterial probe gives clean chit to policemen


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Oct 23: The state government has told the high court that the police were not at fault relating to the firing resorted to by the policemen to quell the anti-citizenship amendment act protest in Mangaluru.

A public interest litigation filed by freedom fighter the late H S Doreswamy and others seeking to order the constitution of a special investigation team to investigate the firing incident which took place on December 19, 2019, was heard by the division bench of the high court presided over by the Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi, on Friday October 22.

Additional advocate general Dhyan Chinnappa, placing arguments on behalf of the state government, informed that the magisterial probe into the Mangaluru firing incident has been completed and that the report has been provided to the high court in a closed envelope. He said that the report has concluded that no one including the policemen were at fault in the incident and that the government has accepted the report. He said that charge sheets have been filed against those who caused the disturbances and the criminal investigation department has been investigating the complaints.

The bench which recorded his submissions, said that the government had been directed to file affidavit about the investigation of cases. "Now the probe report has been filed in a closed envelope. After the court opens the envelope and verifies the report, the concerned will be asked to provide a copy of the same to the advocate for the petitioners," the bench said before adjourning the hearing to November 30.

Petitioners object

Senior advocate, Prof Ravivarma Kumar, appearing for the litigants, said that the magisterial probe appears like having been conducted by the policemen on behalf of the policemen and for the policemen. He said that even though ten complaints were filed against the policemen, first information reports have not been registered in any of the cases, nor any probe was held. He noted that the court had directed the government during July last to provide information about the complaints filed against the policemen, but so far the government has not responded to this order.

    I agree with you. Based on my observations, as a citizen, I do not give a clean chit to the police in this matter. The entire situation was shoddily managed by Mr.Twitterer. Water cannons could have been used if ever or even the same dangerous weapons(high decibel loudspeakers) that are fitted atop structures called masjids. I think the intention was to shoot in the air and not in the hair. If you look closely at the video available you may notice that the policeman shooting had no idea where the gun was shooting. This is the result of extreme lack of training and continuous upgradation of skills. Unskilled persons should not be handling dangerous toys. This is the result of the IAS/IPS(exceptions excluded) being focused on speeches, press interviews, ribbon cutting and lamp lighting ceremonies, Twitter, Facebook and the decorations they add to their shoulders that determine which chair they shall occupy, they have little allegiance toward doing their job to the best of their ability and improving the system.

    This was expected, I am not surprised. But I feel sad when I read the comments from readers in all the news articles related to minorities. The intensity of hatred and anger against each other is growing day by day. I grew up in Mangalore in the 1970s. Those were the wonderful days, when we were playing and studying with our mostly non muslim friends and classmates. We were celebrating our festivals together and no one was bothered about the religion of his friends. I think we can never get those days again in Mangaluru.

Shoot at sight is the last option ...n it will done only after consulting higher authotity ...on that day many normal people had gone mangalore gd or personal work and reasons many school childrens and public were waiting for at the spot of incidents.. why did the police give permission in such a busy area to do a rally ... police should have been more careful then being careless ...

    Police had not given the permission. Mob suddenly gathered starting going berserk ransacking everything. Police got cornered at bunder station and they vehicle was also burnt. They shot in air and then at the mob to save themselves. They did not have a choice left.

    Those who have no respect for the Constitution and for any laws of the land when they torture and do injustice to others, can hardly expect the same Constitution and the laws of the land to protect them when the tables are turned. But I don't expect mobs of hypocrites to understand that. If rule of law is not followed at all times then everybody gets affected by injustice when the fire reaches their doorstep. Yet, people expect that "justice" will be done by their God in the after-life. As if the other side do not have their Gods to protect them from their rivals.

    It is not surprising. But cant deny the fact that the police went overboard in suddenly lathi charging everybody at statebank. It seemed they were in a hurry. Stones were thrown by the police at the salafi mosque on bibi alabi road. Inspector who was firing at the public was upset that not even one person was gunned down by the police. A false narrative was done to prove that public was going to storm arms room in the bunder police station by marking holes on the walls of the 100 year old police station. Worse and most unheard off world over, was the storming of highland hospital and ransacking of the icu. This was followed by AMC medical group justifying police action and generalising the victims as ones who create trouble at hospital. Shameful of that coming from a doctors group. Its shocking that it happened in the city of mangalore. But not surprising. Perhaps like in delhi, if slogans like"mulle kaate jaayenge" " goli maaro saalo ko" were screamed, police wud have been mute spectators. And judiciary wud give bail to those arrested within 48hrs

    @Jason, may be you are not updated or trying to be ignorant..... Mohammed Amir (Formerly Balbir Singh), took part in the Babri Masjid demolition in 1992 which disheartened him. He repented for taking part in the destruction and decided to build 100 mosques in the country. Jisko jalan hoti hai, usko jhoot hi lage ga aur waise "Tere jhoot manne ya na maan ne se haqeeqat toh nahi badlegi. Thoda google search kar aur uska (Balbir) ka video mil jayega....

    Nothing suprising. In India the judiciary also has been communalized. You kill Minorities and then go scot free. In Bangladesh, The police fired on Muslims killing more than 4. Hundreds of Muslims were thrown in jail in Bangladesh for rioting and the Muslims took out march in support of minorities. Do you see any protest in support of minorities by Majority community here? Shame on Secular India.

    Yes of course. When a 7 year old Asifa can be drugged and raped for a week in a temple and then killed off and BJP takes a protest march in support of rapists. You can always white wash any crime by victimizing the victims. Looks like Bangladeshi should start a trend that #MuslimsKhatremainhai and the minorities are working there with Hindutva India to annex Bangladesh.
