Mangaluru, Dec 1: The appearance of provocative graffiti in the coastal city was a conspiracy by communal forces to disrupt peace in the region, feels Social Democratic Party of India.

In two similar incidents reported on November 27 and 29, graffiti in support of Lashkar-e-Taiba and threatening to behead those who insult prophet appeared on the walls of an apartment complex and in court premises in the city, respectively.

Addressing a press conference in the city today, Ataullah Jokatte, Dakshina Kannada district unit president of SDPI, expressed concern over delay by police in arresting the culprits behind the incidents.

He said that the negligence on part of the administration and the police department towards the incident resulted in its recurrence.

He said that the police had even ignored the provocative statement by RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat, who had compared the coastal town of Ullal to Pakistan. The inaction of police in this case gave more courage to anti-national elements to write anti-national slogans on city walls.

Mr Jokatte went on to claim that Sangh Parivar has a notorious history of resorting to such provocative actions in the region as a prelude to creating communal disturbance.

Local SDPI leaders Shahul Hameed, Iqbal Bellare, Anwar Sadath and Jamal Jokatte were present.

"Regarding the case related to the DJ Halli violence, 53 people have been arrested so far, some others are absconding. Sampath Raj, who was arrested last night has been interrogated but further questioning is needed. We will produce him before the court today," Patil said.

Former Bengaluru Mayor Sampath Raj, who has been arrested in DJ Halli and KG Halli violence incident case, was brought to Central Crime Branch (CCB) office in Bengaluru earlier in the day after he was arrested on Monday.

Raj had gone missing on October 31 after authorities at a Bengaluru hospital, where he was admitted for COVID-19 treatment, allegedly discharged him without informing the police.

The CCB had last week filed a preliminary chargesheet in the August 11 violence that took place in Bengaluru, naming Congress corporators AR Zakir and Sampath Raj as accused.

Violence had broken out in parts of Bengaluru on August 11 over an alleged "derogatory" social media post. At least three people lost their lives, while nearly 60 police personnel were injured in the incident. The police arrested around 415 accused in connection with the violence.

An FIR was registered on the complaint of Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy at DJ Halli Police station three days after the violence broke out in parts of Bengaluru over an alleged "derogatory" social media post by his nephew, the police said.
