Puttur, Oct 13: Dakshina Kannada District Youth Congress President Mithun Rai has said that he would quit politics if the allegations leveled against him by BJP are proven to be true.

“The BJP leaders have been accusing that I have insulted Nath tradition and Jogi community members. If BJP leaders prove it, I am ready to retire from active politics and to sacrifice my life as well,” Mr Rai said addressing a protest organised to condemn the Hathras gang-rape incident at Puttur on Monday.

“I have great respect for the Nath tradition and Jogi community. However, the BJP has been levelling allegations against me. I will continue my fight till the Hathras rape victim gets justice and Yogi Adityanath tenders resignation from the post of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister,” said Rai.

Former MLA Shakunthala Shetty said women are facing harassment in the country.

Bantwal, Oct 21: Tulu film actor and rowdy-sheeter Surendra Bhandary Bantwal was found murdered in a residential apartment in Bantwal.

The incident came to light this afternoon. It is suspected that miscreants might have hacked him to death last night or this morning.

He had acted in Tulu movie ‘Chaali Polilu’. Police personnel rushed to the spot and undertook investigation.

He was a hardline Hindutva activist. However, due to personal differences with some leaders he had distanced himself from the Sangh Parivar.

In June 2018, he was arrested along with two others in a case of an attempt to murder three persons belonging to BJP in Baddakatte in Bantwal.
