Kundapur, May 19: “Karnataka Govt. is in favor of one particular minority community. It is motivating terrorists, Naxalites and Cow thiefs to do more of such crimes. Shringeri shootout is clear evidence to this,” said Hindu Jagarana Vedike Chief, Dhananjaya.
He was speaking at a protest held against the compensation amount issue and case against ANF personal, organized by Hindu Jagarana Vedike of Gangolli.
B. Sadananda Shetty and Surendra Kharvi also spoke on the occassion.
On another development, the Additional Sessions Court has turned down the bail plea of the Anti-Naxal Force (ANF) personnel due to whose bullet, Kabir, a cattle trader from Krishnapura, was killed at Tanigodu check-post on April 19.
Constable Naik, a 2012 President’s gallantry medal winner for a Naxal encounter, fired around nine rounds from his AK-47, including the three that hit Kabir. He was arrested on April 25 after Umar Farooq, who was in the truck with Kabir, filed a complaint.
