Mangaluru, Sept 30: Sleuths of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday raided the freedom community hall at Mittur in Bantwal taluk of Dakshina Kannada district on the suspicion that PFI workers were trained in its premises.

One of the trustees of the trust which runs the hall, Ayub Agnadi was arrested by NIA officials, while another trustee Masood Agnadi is missing, police sources said. 

NIA suspects that training was given to activists of the PFI in isolated areas at Bantwal, Puttur and Sullia to carry out terrorist activities. Many youths from across the state are suspected to have been trained at the freedom community hall at Mittur, which was opened by the trust in 2007.

Search is on for the absconding trustee Masood, sources said. NIA had earlier raided the hall on September 6 in connection with the probe into the murder of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leader Praveen Nettar.

Mangaluru, Nov 17: Harekala Gram Panchayat in Dakshina Kannada district has honoured Padma Shri awardee Harekala Hajabba with his painting on its newly built wall.

The panchayat building utilised the special grant released by MLA U T Khader and other funds and is being constructed at Bavaliguri.

The work has been accelerated and will be inaugurated shortly.

''The wall has paintings on Hajabba and his life. By selling oranges, Hajabba realised his dream of building a school in his village for educating the children. His work won him honour across the world apart a Padma Shri award,'' said Gram Panchayat president Badruddin.

"All the members in the panchayat unanimously decided to honour him through paintings in the gram panchayat building," he added. 

Harekala Hajabba is a poor orange vendor, who saved money to build a school in his village. In 2020, he was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award, for his initiative and achievement.

Bengaluru, Nov 21: At least 48 vehicles were damaged in a road accident resulting in a pile-up of vehicles on a bridge in Pune on the busy Pune-Bengaluru Highway on Sunday. 

The accident was reportedly caused by a speeding tanker ramming into multiple vehicles on the highway. Local media reports said that the brakes of the tanker had failed, which made it collide with other vehicles. Oil spilled on the road after the accident, making it slippery and leading to more collisions.

Dozens of injured persons have been shifted to local hospitals. According to the information reaching here, the accident took place on the Navale Bridge.

Top officials of Pune Police, Pune Municipal Corporation, and Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) reached the spot, and rescue operations were in progress. 

“There has been an unfortunate accident in Pune. The necessary help is being rendered” Baramati MP Supriya Sule said. “The injured would receive the necessary treatment,” she said.

 “There has been an unfortunate accident on Navale Bridge on Pune-Bengaluru Highway. Rescue teams from Fire Brigade and PMRDA are on spot and tending to those injured. I request citizens to not share unverified forwards and also refrain from visiting the spot and interfering with trained professionals,” Shivajinagar MLA Siddharth Shirole said. 

The incident has led to a massive traffic jam on the Mumbai-Satara route which connects to Karnataka. 

Locals have rushed to the spot and are speaking to occupants of each and every vehicle about their well-being. 

While there is no official word about the cause of the incident, reports said that the brakes of a truck/container failed resulting in the pile-up which included SUVs, cars and autos. 

Photos and videos of the incident that is going viral reveal that some vehicles were damaged badly. 

A huge crowd has assembled on the highway. 

The Sinhgad police are looking into the issue. “An uncontrolled truck was responsible for the incident,” a police official said.

Bengaluru, Nov 25: The Election Commission on Friday directed officials for a review of the deletions and additions in the electoral rolls of three Assembly seats in Karnataka and ordered the suspension of two additional district election officials after allegations of "electoral fraud" in the state.

The poll authority also directed the chief electoral officer to share a list of all deletions and additions made to the electoral rolls of the Shivajinagar, Chickpet and Mahadevapura Assembly seats after January 1, 2022 with all the recognised political parties so as to enable them to file claims and objections.

The Election Commission directives came a day after the Congress petitioned the poll authority, seeking a detailed investigation into the "voter information theft fraud" in Karnataka.

The Congress had alleged that 27 lakh names were deleted and 11 lakh voters added to the voters' lists of the three Assembly constituencies, claiming that the employees of a private company had collected voters' data, impersonating as government officials.

The commission also appointed officers from outside the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), under which the three Assembly seats fall, to oversee the exercise of ensuring the purity of the electoral rolls.
