Mangaluru, (DHNS): Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Alok Mohan on Wednesday said experts from different parts of the state have been roped in to crack the murder of RSS worker Sharat Madiwala.
Sharath, who was stabbed on July 4 at Bantwal, died at a hospital in Mangaluru on July 7. “It is a professional challenge and special teams have been formed to probe the case. Experts have been brought from places outside the Dakshina Kannada district such as Vijayapura, Bagalkot and Kolar. We are making sincere efforts in this regard,” the ADGP told reporters here.
Mohan, who refused to divulge details related to probe, exuded confidence of solving the case soon, with investigators working on strong leads already gathered in the particular case.
Asked if there were any similarities in the murder of Sharath and those of other RSS workers in the past, Rudresh in Bengaluru and Raju in Mysuru, the officer said it would be known only after the current case is solved. It took five months to crack Raju’s murder. He was killed on March 13, 2016.
On investigation into stone-throwing during the funeral procession of Sharath, the ADGP said six cases have been registered and video footage are being examined. In all, 17 people have been arrested in connection with various incidents reported in the recent past in the district, starting from the clash at Kalladka. All those arrested are locals and are not from Kerala, he said to a query.
Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel on Wednesday said that if the BJP and Hindu leaders are arrested on the charges of stone-pelting, then the state government and district in-charge minister B Ramantah Rai Rai would be responsible for all the aftermath incidents in the district.
Kateel said instead of arresting those responsible for throwing stones, assault and other untoward incidents, cases have been filed against BJP leaders who were part of the funeral procession of Sharath. The political conspiracy by the Congress was responsible for unrest in Dakshina Kannada district. The Congress is engaged in appeasing minorities for winning the next Assembly elections, he stated.
The BJP Mahila Morcha will stage a protest against the ‘attempt’ by the state government to suppress the BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders, in Mangaluru on July 13. Yeddyurappa will attend the protest.
The ADGP said Mangaluru police commissioner T R Suresh will take a call on giving permission to the protest meeting planned at Nehru Ground.
