Udupi, Oct 19: The Udupi district police have filed a charge-sheet against two siblings from Moodbidri accusing them of hacking the social media account of NRI Harish Bangera and posting provocative posts from it.

Harish Bangera, 33, from Beejadi in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district was jailed in Saudi Arabia since December 2019 for insulting religious sentiments and abusing the Saudi royal family through Facebook. Harish was an AC mechanic working in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Before his arrest by Saudi police, Harish Bangera had confessed to his crime and posted a video on social media apologising for his act. He also had promised that he would never commit the same mistake again. The confession and apology video is still available on social media platforms.

However, Harish’s wife Suman had claimed that her husband is innocent, and that the posts on Facebook were uploaded by others hacking his account. She had suspected foul play in her husband’s arrest in Saudi.

Based on her complaint, the Udupi police had arrested Abdul Uais and Abdul Tuves, siblings from Moodbidri in Dakshina Kannada district.

Udupi superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhana said that they recently filed a charge-sheet in connection with the arrests made. Meanwhile, they have also submitted a report to the ministry of external affairs in this regard.

Bengaluru, Oct 20: Two people have been taken into custody in connection with the bomb threat to a special judge hearing the drug case involving celebrities in Karnataka, police sources said on Tuesday.

A family feud in Tiptur of Tumakuru district is suspected to be the reason behind the incident allegedly plotted by rival members who wanted one of their kin to land in trouble, he said without divulging further information.

"Two persons have been detained for questioning. They will be brought to Bengaluru," a top police officer told PTI on condition of anonymity.

An NDPS special judge hearing the drug racket case received a threat letter and a parcel with a detonator on Monday here, demanding grant of bail to two film actresses and those booked in the August 11 violence here.

The person who wrote the letter had warned that a blast would be triggered if the demands were not met. Later, the investigation revealed that there was no bomb inside but some wires which created an impression of a detonator.

According to a preliminary inquiry, the letter was sent from Chelur in Tumakuru district, the sources said adding two people were taken into custody for questioning.
