Mangaluru, Aug 14: The city police have booked fresh case after the screenshot of a deleted derogatory Facebook post resurfaced on social media.

The development comes within days after a separate defamatory social media post triggered a massive violence in Bengaluru. 

A case had been registered in connection with the defamatory post in 2018 at the cyber, economic offences and narcotics (CEN) police station, but the investigation reached a dead end.

Mangaluru city police commissioner Vikash Kumar Vikash confirmed that a case had been booked two years ago. “No link to this post exists on Facebook now. But, based on a complaint, we have registered a fresh case at the CEN station. Such posts must not be circulated at all. People with any information about those circulating the post must immediately contact police,” he said.

The commissioner said that they were in the earnest in hunting down the culprits who were spreading rumours. “We would not have registered a fresh case otherwise,” said Vikash, warning of police initiating stringent action against those indulging in the circulation of such inflammatory messages.

Kalaburagi, Jan 13: Tur growers of six districts in Kalyan Karnataka region on Wednesday expressed concern as government agency sold the old stock of Tur below Minimum Support price (MSP ) amid the new Tur procurement period.

According to the Karnataka Pranta Raith Sangh President Sharanabasappa Managashetty, the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (NAFED) has started stalling last year's Tur stocks in the open market below the MSP and this has become a major concern among the Tur growers.

Mr Managashetty said 'the NAFED is selling last year's old Tur stock at pricing ranging from Rs 5,300 to Rs 5.800 per quintals in the open market which has created a situation where farmers are forced to compete with the government in the open market.'

Some sections of Tur farmers fear that traders might buy their crops at lower prices from NAFED and sell it back to the government posing as farmers, he said.

The Centre Government has fixed Rs 6,000 per quintal as the MSP for Tur for 2020-21, up from last fiscal which was Rs 5,800 and this year the state government plans to buy 20 quintals at the new MSP from each farmer, the registration process for the same has started.

Jewargi MLA, Dr Ajay Dharm Singh has strongly criticised state government for this anti farmers behaviour and demanded immediate withdrawal of selling old stock of Tur from government agencies and announced the initiative for Tur growers in the region.
