Mangaluru, Oct 18: The city police and vigilantes of Bajrang Dal today intercepted a truck and seized 2,500 kg of beef that was being transported in it. Police also nabbed two persons who were transporting the meat ostensibly from Hubballi to the city.

Acting on information given by Bajrang Dal, personnel from Kankanady Town police station intercepted the truck near Kannur-Padil and seized the vehicle.

Deputy commissioner of police (law and order) Arunangshu Giri said the carcasses of slaughtered cows were hidden behind plastic trays containing fish. The lorry was coming to the city via Hassan when police intercepted it, he added. This is the second such incident in the last week. On Tuesday, personnel of Mangaluru north PS too had intercepted a vehicle in which 1,000 kg of beef was being transported illegally.

Sharan Kumar Pumpwell, divisional secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad said the new modus operandi used by those into illegal cattle slaughter and meat trade is a disturbing development. “This is precisely the reason why the VHP has urged the city police commissioner to set up a special squad,” Sharan said. “We are passing information on any such illegal movement of meat into Dakshina Kannada district to the police for them to take action,” he added.

Mangaluru, Nov 29: After a graffiti supporting pro-terror organisations, another controversial graffiti appeared on the wall of an old building that had housed a police outpost in the past, on Court road in Mangaluru.

The graffiti read ‘Gusuk-e-Rasool ek hi saza sar tan say juda’. (The only punishment for those who insult Prophet is separation of head from body).

The incident came to light on Sunday. The graffiti was scribbled using black paint. The police rushed to the spot and erased the graffiti.

It may be recalled that graffiti in support of Lashkar-e-Taiba had cropped up on the wall of an apartment recently. The police have already formed three teams to probe into it.
