Bengaluru, Sep 25: Karnataka Chief Minister, B. S. Yediurappa's daughter, Aruna Udayakumar has been appointed as Women wing president of the Akhil Bharata Veerashaiva Mahasabha (ABVM) on Thursday.

The ABVM is the most prestigious body of the Lingayat community, to which Yeddiyurappa belongs to. The Lingayat community holds sway in more than 150 Assembly seats across the state.

Although, the Community presence in North-Karnataka region is highly concentrated, but in Southern Karnataka region too they have sizable vote share where Vokkaliga community is very dominant.

This religious body is an easy way for any leader to come to public life. This is seen as a first step towards bringing Aruna into public life.

At present the ABVM is in control of Congress leaders, with sugar baron and prominent businessman Shamanooru Shivashankarappa heading it, while its general secretary is KPCC working president, Eshwar Khandre.

Bantwal, Oct 21: Tulu film actor and rowdy-sheeter Surendra Bhandary Bantwal was found murdered in a residential apartment in Bantwal.

The incident came to light this afternoon. It is suspected that miscreants might have hacked him to death last night or this morning.

He had acted in Tulu movie ‘Chaali Polilu’. Police personnel rushed to the spot and undertook investigation.

He was a hardline Hindutva activist. However, due to personal differences with some leaders he had distanced himself from the Sangh Parivar.

In June 2018, he was arrested along with two others in a case of an attempt to murder three persons belonging to BJP in Baddakatte in Bantwal.

Bhatkal, Oct 20: Jewelry worth about Rs 40 lakh, which was donated to Durgaparameshwari Temple here by devotees was stolen from the temple premises.

Police said on Tuesday that the temple authorities, in a complaint, further added that a priest who was working at the temple was also missing ever since the incident came to light on Monday night.

The temple administration in the complaint has identified the missing priest as Sathish Bhat, a resident of Yellapur.

In the complaint, it is added that the incident came to the light when the Chief priest of the temple opened the jewellery box on the occasion of Navratri, to put the jewellery on the goddess.

The temple authorities reportedly tried contacting Sathish over the phone as he had the keys to a jewellery locker. Unable to contact him over the phone, the administration decided to break open the locker, as it was the ritual of the temple to put jewellery on the Goddess.

Sathish was working at the temple for the last year but had not reported to the duty for over a month now. The authorities further added that they last spoke to Sathish over the phone on Friday, but were unable to contact him on Saturday.

A case in this regard has been registered at Bhatkal Rural Police Station and investigations are underway. A special team has also been formed by Yellapur Police to trace Sathish Bhat.
