Mangaluru: Legal action against rumour mongers –Police commissioner

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Aug 4: City police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said that district administration is taking strict action to prevent law and order situation from deteriorating in the wake of the sensitive incidents that are occurring in the district of Dakshina Kannada and also fury of rain.

Shashikumar said, “Our personnel, Chikkamagaluru, Uttara Kannada district personnel, KSRP officials are patrolling all places. Night Prohibitory orders are in place in the district. Honest attempt is being made to bring the life of commoners to normal state. In the midst of this, it has come to our notice that some people are trying to create rumours and gossips and propagating news beyond their limits. Police department will monitor such people and take stringent legal action.

“A rumour was making rounds in some social media apps that attack has taken place at Ullal. I personally went to both spots and inquired and came to know that such incident did not occur at all. The incident that was reported at MRPL was out and out rumour. At Ullal a 49-year-old man made false propaganda out of panic attack. He is subjected to interrogation and instructions are given to take suitable legal action. Information is being gathered about this man from the locals too,” he said.

    While appreciating your work day and night and also your personnel, and while giving due respect to your uniform, and with much gratitude.....dear sir, let me bring to your kind notice and for your information, whatever happens here is out of pure revenge. Reason are poly ticians. They give provocative speeches/derogatory statements and sow the seeds of hatred/jealousy/inhumanity.. Definitely i say, kudla people are very good in heart. Why these poly ticians allow them to do illegal policing When your team is active here ? Please hold responsible the poly ticians for such unwanted developments in our state. We too know that free hand is not given by the govt....As long as these poly ticians do not stop spewing venom, people will spread rumours irrespective of castes/creed. Everyone loves their religion....eventhough if RELIGION gives nothing. This is the opinion of almost everyone, who cannot put up here... God bless sir...We are with you.

    Few months back CM issued a statement that if anybody gives hate speech action will be taken, instead of taking action it is increased by one community leaders/politicians. Why don't police/government take legal action on hate speakers , be it be from any community/political party.

    The beauty of Democracy is to question the elected govt on its promises.... But here forget the questioning, the public and media is 24*7 behind Hindu Muslim topics and as a result the likes of political parties take full advantage of the situation and people are forced to believe their faith is in danger ! Then comes rumors and fake news to strengthen that belief .... Since 2014 the fake news and rumors have been just uncontrolled, thanks to IT cell ! Rs 2/ tweet gangs !

    Why the administration impose restrictions on public rather than restricting the criminals which makes life hell on the people already on bad stage. Why the MLAs and MPs are mum on this.?? The DC and police are handling the situation very immorallly.

    First ban BD, Immoral police and rightwing Hindu activists who are terrorising the people and the society in particular. Police are the one to ensure that no unauthorized organization or members have any legal right to keep a watch on people.

    Rumor mongers are same like kidnappers, blackmailers, acid throwers and rapists... Their mentality is to spread anarchy in the society... They must be booked under serious and heinous crimes... They do things knowing fully well about the consequences of their actions...

    If you are honest to your uniform arrest those who have hate speech cases . Crime cannot be controlled by only arresting low end criminals. Arrest those criminals who are roaming with security. Spineless one sided police not good for nation. Self respect is very important for human beings.

    First and foremost you should take the action against those who provoke the youth to commit the crime and divide society. They are the most dangerous venom snakes to society in the guise of politicians and a religious leader.
