Mangaluru, Oct 13: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai today indirectly defended the immoral rowdyism (also dubbed as moral policing or immoral policing) saying that actions that hurt sentiments of the society would naturally trigger reactions. 

Replying to questions of media persons after landing at Mangaluru International Airport, the CM termed the ‘immoral rowdyism’ a very “sensitive issue”. 

The statement comes in the wake of a series of incidents of immoral rowdyism in Mangaluru and other parts of coastal Karnataka wherein saffron outfits target young men and women over inter-faith friendship. 

“We all should be responsible citizens while living in a society. It is also our responsibility not to hurt the sentiments of the society. If someone’s action hurts the sentiments, then there will be reaction too,” he said.

He said that the young generation should not shun morality and moral values in the society. “Morality is very essential for peace in the family and society. Otherwise there will be adverse reactions,” he explained.

Mengaluru, Oct 6: In the wake of spotting of a leopard in Maroli area of Mangaluru, the forest department has placed a camera to capture the movement of the animal and a cage to trap it. 

The forest officials rushed to the spot after a video showing a leopard crossing the road in Maroli area surfaced.

The presence of a pug mark has confirmed that it was a leopard, said DCF Dinesh Kumar.

"We had received information on leopard being spotted at Pacchanadi a few days ago.  A team of officials is also patrolling the area and residents have been warned not to move around at night," he said.

"There was no trace of the leopard on Monday night. The footage of CCTV cameras of houses in the nearby area is being checked. If we get the footage on the movement of leopard, then more cages and camera traps will be placed," he added.

Kalaburagi, Oct 12: Two mild earthquakes of 3.5 and 2.8 magnitudes were reported from Chincholi taluk in Kalaburagi district of Karnataka within 10 minutes today. 

This is the seventh tremor people have witnessed in the region in a week. While two had occurred in Basavakalyan on October 1 and 5, four were recorded in Kalaburagi on October 9, 11 and 12. 

Panic-stricken people spent the night outdoors in Gadikeshwar and Kupnoor following the tremors. The walls of over 10 houses have collapsed and hundreds of houses developed cracks. In the absence of private vehicles, people are moving out of the village on their motorbikes. Around 100 families have left surrounding villages.

The Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority commissioner Manoj Rajan said that he has convened a meeting of the geologists to understand the phenomena. He added that the disaster management teams in the north Karnataka region has been put on alert. They have also been briefed about the do's and don'ts in the event of any major earthquake.

The KSNDMC said in a statement that the intensity observed on Monday night was "little higher than low intensity". "The earthquake might be felt up to a radial distance of 50 to 60 km or even more. These types of earthquakes do not create any harm or damage to the local community, although there will be vibrations felt up to a distance of 50 to 60 kms based on the local geology," it said. 

The earthquakes assume significance as the epicentres are in close proximity to Latur and Killari in Maharashtra, which had witnessed a massive earthquake in September 1993 killing a large number of people.
