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.

International passenger flights to remain suspended till Dec 31

New Delhi, Nov 26: The Centre on Thursday extended the suspension of scheduled commercial international flight operations to and from India till December 31.

"This restriction shall not apply to the international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation)," an official statement said on Thursday.

"However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case to case basis," it added.

At present, India has entered into 'Air Bubble' agreements with several countries.

This type of arrangement allows nationals of both the countries to travel in either direction.

Passenger air services were suspended on March 25 due to the nationwide lockdown to check the spread of Covid-19.

Domestic flight services, however, resumed from May 25.

Bengaluru, Nov 17: In a veiled attack on the Karnataka government, State Congress chief DK Shivakumar on Tuesday said it was their "agenda and plan" to arrest Congress leader and former Bengaluru Mayor Sampath Raj in the Bengaluru violence case.

He added that the arrest of Sampath Raj was a clear message of targeting Congress leaders.

"It is their agenda to do this, it is a clear message of targeting Congress leaders. They had planned to do this," Shivakumar told media persons here.

Earlier in the day, Karnataka Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai termed the arrest of Sampath Raj in the Bengaluru violence case as a major development that will lead to "exposure of the conspiracy and people behind it".

"He was accused and was absconding. Had he been innocent, he would not have absconded. We have caught him. There will be a further probe. His arrest is a major development that will lead to exposure of the conspiracy and people behind it (Bengaluru violence)," said Basavaraj Bommai, Karnataka Minister.

Sampath Raj was brought to the Central Crime Branch's (CCB) office in Bengaluru after being arrested earlier in the day in connection with the DJ Halli and KG Halli violence case, police said.

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.

Earlier, his lawyer had alleged political vendetta behind the chargesheet filed against him in the Bengaluru violence case and said that the chargesheet had no material to prove any of the charges invoked in the matter.

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.
