Mangaluru, Apr 7: Two days after arresting a teenage boy for the coldblooded murder of a 12-year-old boy at K C Road on the outskirts of the city, the police on Tuesday arrested the father of the arrested boy too.

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said the boy's father tried to hide his son's blood-stained shirt and asked him to not speak about the incident or that he had met the deceased boy, identified as Mohammed Aakif.

Kumar said the teenage accused, who was produced before the Juvenile Justice Board and since sent to an observation home, told them he returned home after the incident and confided in his father. That was when his father asked him to brush the incident under the carpet.

Bengaluru, Apr 9: Bus services were hit in Karnataka for the third consecutive day on Friday, as the stalemate between the employees of the road transport corporations, who are on an indefinite strike on wage related issues, and the state government continued.

With the government on Thursday evening reiterating that it was not possible to fulfil their demand for the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission report, RTC employees have decided to continue with the strike.

As employees belonging to all the four transport corporations did not attend duty, buses continued to remain off the roads across the state, including Bengaluru, affecting daily commuters.

Passengers travelling to and from distant areas and office-goers were the most affected.

Private buses, mini buses, maxi cabs and other passenger transport vehicles were seen providing services to stranded passengers in different parts of the city and the state.

However, the number of passengers using private buses continued to remain scarce in the city, as people were using their own vehicles or were seen using cabs, Metro and auto rickshaws, especially in the city areas, private operators said.

Metro has increased the frequency of its services between 7 am and 9 pm.

Amid threats of ESMA and "no work no pay", very few RTC workers have returned to work and buses are said to be operating on some routes in the city along with police escort, sources said, adding that there are similar reports from few other places in the state.

Transport Department Principal Secretary Anjum Parvez on Thursday had said as a temporary arrangement, employees who have retired in the last two years have been requested to come back to service.

"They should be physically fit, medical and eye tests will be done."

Also requesting employees to get back to work, as the government has fuliffed 8 of their 9 demands and has decided for 8 per cent salary increase as an interim relief, he had said that per day loss because of the strike is about Rs 20 crore.

RTCs that have been warning employees about continuing with the strike, have started taking action against trainee employees and are issuing notice for absence from work.

Bengaluru, Apr 5: Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday alleged that the ideology of both BJP and RSS is 'poisonous' and the people “would die soon if they consumed it.”

Speaking after participating in the birth anniversary of Dalit leader and former Deputy Prime Minister late Jagjivan Ram at the Congress party officer here, he said “RSS and BJP are like poison. If you taste them, you will die” and appealed to the people not to support the BJP in the coming by-elections in Karnataka, and Assembly elections in other States.

Alleging that the BJP was neither respecting the Constitution nor democracy, he said the saffron party has been following divisive politics to secure power in one State after the other.

On Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh, Mr Kharge said that Mr Modi lied about his participation in the freedom struggle of that country. “Mr. Modi should have also said that he had participated in the freedom struggle of India,” he said sarcastically.

Mr Kharge said the Prime Minister and the BJP sidelined leaders such as LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi citing their age was more than 75 years. Now the same party has fielded 88-year-old E Sreedharan in the Assembly elections in Kerala. Why does the BJP follow different policies for different persons, he questioned.
