Mangaluru, Oct 18: Five friends have been arrested by the police on the charges of murder of a youth in a lodge at Mahaveera Circle in Mangaluru on October 16.

The arrested are Prameeth, Jayson, Karthik, Durgesh and Prajwal, said City Police Commissioner N Shashi Kumar. 

Explaining the reason for the murder, he said the victim, Dhanush, had the habit of speaking ill of women, including mother and sister.

All the arrested who were his friends had decided to teach him a lesson by warning him not to speak ill of women and young girls after partying on account of Dasara.

To hold the party, they had booked a room in a lodge on October 14 and were staying. After partying on October 15, while they were asking Dhanush not to speak ill of women, the latter had justified his act.

In a fit of rage, Jayson assaulted Dhanush with a knife in the wee hours of October 16. The injured while trying to flee from the room collapsed near the staircase of the lodge. Though he was rushed to the hospital, the doctors declared him dead.

Of the arrested, three had criminal backgrounds with cases against them registered at various police stations relating to rioting, assault, NDPS act and others. Jayson has two cases registered against him at police stations, Prameeth has nine cases, Karthik has two cases.

All arrested do not have any fixed job and were engaged in odd jobs for a living. They will undergo a medical test to ascertain whether they had consumed drugs when the incident occurred, informed the Police Commissioner.

Mangaluru, Nov 27: In the wake of trishul attack incidents in the coastal district, former minister U T Khader has urged the Dakshina Kannada district administration and police to conduct a detailed inquiry into the recent ‘Trishul Deekshe’ wherein weapons were distributed by the Sangh Parivar.

Speaking to media persons the Mangaluru MLA sought to know whether the assault and untoward incident cases reported in the district in the recent past were the result of the ‘Trishul Deekshe’ programmes

He said that if ‘trishul’ distributed among youth were misused, then action should be initiated against those who distributed ‘trishul’ and also on those who misused it. “What will be the future if all youth start carrying trishul instead of pens? Legal action should be taken if such programmes triggered untoward incidents in the district,” he demanded.

The coastal districts have been witnessing untoward incidents of communal clashes only because of the lack of freedom given to the police. The police department is under political pressure, the MLA told reporters here on Saturday.

“Police officials are not able to work due to “political blackmailing” which in turn has resulted in an increase in untoward incidents in the coastal districts. It is the height of lawlessness that Hindu Jagarana Vedike leaders are threatening even the deputy commissioner of holding his collar if their demand is not fulfilled and warning a police officer that her leg will be broken, said the MLA.

“The Hindutva leaders who issued such statements are confident of making such statements openly in front of police. This is the gift of the BJP administration to anti-social elements in the state. The government should take serious measures to prevent leaders from making such statements in public and social media platforms,” added the former Minister.

The Home Minister and the District in Charge Minister should convene a meeting and discuss the untoward incidents that were reported in the district all these days.
