Mangaluru, Sept 9: The Supreme Court of India today granted bail to 22 people who were arrested by the police on charge of indulging in violence on December 19, 2019 in Mangaluru.

They were arrested after two innocent civilians were killed in police firing following a minor chaos that erupted when policemen resorted to arbitrary batten charge during an anti-CAA protest.  

A team of lawyers led by former Kerala judge R Basant under the guidance of senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi defended the accused in the apex court. 

Hailing the top court’s decision as a victory of truth, former Mangaluru North MLA B A Mohideen Bava, said that all those who suffered following last year’s police firing deserve all kinds of support from the people and government. 

The Supreme Court’s decision to grant bail underlines the shortcomings on parts of Mangaluru police, he said.
