Udupi, Aug 9: The South Karnataka unit of the Bajrang Dal has urged the police to prevent the increasing cases of thefts of cows and thefts of valuables in temples in Udupi district.
Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, Sunil K.R., convener of the South Karnataka unit of Bajrang Dal, said that the number of cases of theft of cows had increased in Udupi district in the last few months. So too, the number of thefts in temples too had increased.
The Bajrang Dal would bring this matter to the notice of the police. If the police failed to take action, the Bajrang Dal would think of forming a committee, which would enrol its members to guard the temples.
So too, if the police failed to catch cow thieves, the Bajrang Dal might consider forming Gau-Raksha Dal in Udupi district as had been done in Dakshina Kannada. But a final decision with regard to the formation of the Gau-Raksha Dal had not yet been taken. It would be discussed at the meeting of the Bajrang Dal district unit, he said.
The Bajrang Dal would celebrate the Akhil Bharat Sankalp Dina on August 14, where it intended to explain to the youth and the Hindu community, the circumstances leading to the Independence of the country and the “atrocities committed on the Hindus during that period”. The Akhil Bharat Sankalp Dina would be celebrated at 48 places, from Byndoor to Kodagu, Mr. Sunil said.
Bajrang Dal leaders Surendra Koteshwar, Sudhir Nitte and Anil Udupi were present.
