Mangaluru, (DHNS): Director General and Inspector General of Police Rupak Kumar Dutta on Friday ordered review of all cases of murder, attempt to murder and assault using weapons registered in the jurisdictions of Mangaluru Police Commissionerate and Dakshina Kannada district police in the last five years.
The direction of the state police chief comes in the wake of communal tension in the coastal district in the recent weeks, which has forced the district administration to clamp prohibitory orders since May-end.
The police have been asked to review cases registered under the IPC Sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 326 (assault using weapons).
Addressing reporters here, Dutta said, “All cases related to rowdyism and weapons used in the crimes under the aforementioned IPC sections, registered in both police commissionerate limits and district police limits (headed by SP) will be reviewed, along with unsolved cases. The cases will be reviewed to study the present status of the accused and initiate action against them under Sections 107 to 110 of CrPC (Security case), followed by Goonda Act and Karnataka Control of Organised Crimes Act (KCOCA), besides taking measures to extern them. The list of such people will be compiled, so as to bind them from resorting to any such activities in the future.”
In case of any unsolved incidents, measures would be taken to nab the suspects, Dutta said.
The DG&IGP warned troublemakers of stringent action. Dutta, who visited the epicentre of the communal violence in Bantwal and Vittal on Friday and Ullal on Thursday night, claimed that the ground situation is peaceful now.
Asked whether any suspects have been taken into custody in connection with the murder of the RSS worker Sharath Madiwala in BC Road, Dutta replied in the positive.
He exuded confidence that the perpetrators of the crime will be apprehended soon as investigators have definite clues.
He defended the recent reshuffle of top police officers and said ‘police have to act effectively’.
