Kundapur: Kota Koraga assault incident – Siddaramaiah slams police for counter complaint

Daijiworld Media Network – Kundapur (MS)

Kundapur, Dec 31: Former chief minister Siddaramaiah expressed anguish over the filing of counter complaint by the police in the lathi-charge that took place at a Mehendi programme in the house of a youth belonging to Koraga community at Kota in the taluk.

Kota station police constable Jayaram had filed a counter complaint accusing the bridegroom and others of beating him with wooden logs. This complaint was filed immediately after superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhan visited the home of the affected people and consoled them.

Social welfare minister Srinivas Poojary also visited the house where the police lathi-charge took place and pacified the victims. However, as the eminent personality left the place, the police constable filed a counter complaint saying that the residents of the Koraga colony attacked him.

Leader of opposition Siddaramaiah expressed his rage over the whole episode and tweeted, “The act of police is a shame on the cops as well as the government. The constable should immediately withdraw the complaint he has filed against the hapless Koraga community people. Suitable action should be taken against the erring policemen.

“Did the police register the case without the notice of minister Kota Srinivas Poojary? If so, he is an inefficient minister. BJP says all Hindus are one. Are the Koragas not included in it?” he stated in his tweet.

    Should rule of law exist or should anarchy be promoted? Should mobocracy be promoted at the cost of rule of law and justice?! ///Why haven’t the law-breakers been booked for the actual complaint of violation of the Noise Pollution Rules under sec.15 of the EPA and for violation of night curfew ?// Everything else were subsequent to that violation of the law! A citizen’s right to life as guaranteed by the Constitution of India was in jeopardy. The civilised citizen correctly called the appropriate authority to protect his rights, instead of resorting to the law of the jungle to protect his rights. ///The question also to be asked over here is whether the “night curfew” was imposed and that was also violated./// The police reached the spot, they told the party to reduce the volume or stop it. They were disobeyed. The complainant made another complaint. The police came and warned the party again. They were disobeyed again and challenged. The senior of the police station was informed - he came to the spot with lathis for crowd control and self protection as the crowd was large and drunk. He told everyone to disperse . He was disobeyed and the crowd pushed him.—This is the scenario. --- This scenario is nothing new and in 90% of such cases, all over India, the story is almost the same. In most cases these parties go on till after mid-night and even upto 2 - 4 am. In several cases, all over India, policemen have been hit and injured by the drunk crowd for stopping similar parties./// I am willing to believe that the policemen wielded their lathis and injured some people in the process. I am willing to believe that the police may also have indulged in excesses.// An inquiry was instituted, report made post-haste and the policemen were punished./// I am NOT willing to believe that the police hit women and children and old men, IN THIS case. Very, very, unlikely scenario in such a case.///

    Mr.Siddaramaiah is indulging in bad politics by promoting lawlessness.//Criminal politicians hate rule of law because they will get caught.//For the sake of vote-bank politics he does not mind a medical patient being killed.//What the vote bank should realise is that they will equally suffer under lawlessness.//As per news reports: A person called the police for help.--- QuoteHe had called 112 and asked help to reduce the sound of the music as his mother has heart ailment.

    Hindus are not able to stay united within themselves, there are lot differences and hatred between each section and division of hindus. On the contrary they are interfering with others’ business in the name of love jihad, conversion and cow slaughter. In the process India is going backwards a hundred years instead of progress.
