Mangaluru, Dec 1: The appearance of provocative graffiti in the coastal city was a conspiracy by communal forces to disrupt peace in the region, feels Social Democratic Party of India.

In two similar incidents reported on November 27 and 29, graffiti in support of Lashkar-e-Taiba and threatening to behead those who insult prophet appeared on the walls of an apartment complex and in court premises in the city, respectively.

Addressing a press conference in the city today, Ataullah Jokatte, Dakshina Kannada district unit president of SDPI, expressed concern over delay by police in arresting the culprits behind the incidents.

He said that the negligence on part of the administration and the police department towards the incident resulted in its recurrence.

He said that the police had even ignored the provocative statement by RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat, who had compared the coastal town of Ullal to Pakistan. The inaction of police in this case gave more courage to anti-national elements to write anti-national slogans on city walls.

Mr Jokatte went on to claim that Sangh Parivar has a notorious history of resorting to such provocative actions in the region as a prelude to creating communal disturbance.

Local SDPI leaders Shahul Hameed, Iqbal Bellare, Anwar Sadath and Jamal Jokatte were present.

Mandya, Nov 21: Jolted by a jump over a speedbreaker, a baby fell off her mother’s lap from the moped and died in hospital moments later on Friday. The girl’s mother and aunt were returning from a wedding when the tragedy took place at Kirangandur village.

Police said Ranjita, a resident of Chandagalu village in Mandya taluk, and her elder sister Madhumati had gone to a marriage ceremony at Mottahalli village. Ranjita had taken one-and-a-half-year-old Kanishka along. Madhumati rode the moped while Ranjita sat on the pillion, with the infant in her lap.

While returning, Madhumati crossed a speed hump with great difficulty and in the resultant jolt, Ranjita lost grip over the baby. Kanishka slipped and fell, followed by her mother and aunt as the moped crashed to the ground. The child suffered severe injuries to the head and other parts as well. The women were injured too but seeing Kanishka badly hurt, they rushed her to Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences.

Kanishka died soon after. Ranjita and Madhumati are being treated in hospital. Locals who witnessed the accident told police the speed bump is faultily designed and located, causing the two-wheeler to trip over. “The hump is very high and is not immediately visible to motorists. Had it been scientifically designed, the toddler would not have lost her life,” a villager said.
