Mangaluru, November 24: Few BJP leaders and a huge crowd of activists from various Hindu organizations and assembled in front of Ullal police station on Sunday November 23rd, and demanded the cops to release innocent people arrested in relation to the missing of a college girl from Kotekar near Ullal.
A girl named Insha Khaleel (19) had married guy named Bharatraj, a bus conductor from Ira village.
With regard to the complaint filed by girl’s father alleging kidnapping, the police had summoned Someshwar gram panchayat member, Latha and her husband, who reportedly provided support for the said marriage. The cops have also taken parents of some youth, into custody who had reportedly helped Bharatraj to take the girl with him.
The BJP leaders and Hindu activists urged the cops to release the arrested people.
The Hindu activists said that the Ullal cops had failed to detect the culprits involved in several incidents at Ullal during the last few months, but had acted keenly in this case. They pointed out that the police had not followed the above measure when M C Bava from Chembugudde, accused of involvement with illegal cattle trafficking and running slaughterhouse. When Bava escaped, the police had not taken his family members into custody, they said. They expressed anger over the strategy of the cops.
The activists were particularly angry at the police for making the mother and grandmother of one of the accused, Rahul, to spend long time inside the police station, in spite of the fact that both of them are suffering from ill health. They alleged that the police are unnecessarily harassing innocent people.
Several BJP leaders and people’s representatives discussed with cops for about three hours. It is said that the cops promised them to release the women who were taken into custody relating to the said case by evening.
The girl Insha Khaleel had left behind a note to her parents which stated that she had married the boy Bharatraj whom she loved on her own accord and no one had aided or forced her.
