Mangaluru, Jan 16: A 37-year-old man has been arrested by the police in connection with setting fire to two makeshift beef stalls at Olapete in Thokkottu on the outskirts of the city.  

The arrested has been identified as Nagaraj alias Naga, a 37-year-old man, who was staying in a rented house along with his mother at Olapete 

City police commissioner N Shashi Kumar today told media persons that Nagaraj was a regular customer at the beef stalls in Olapete. He set fire to the stalls after owners refused to give him extra beef despite being a regular customer. 

At around 2 a.m. on January 9, the accused poured kerosene on the stalls and set them on fire. He also had revealed this to his mother after committing the crime, said the police. 

The makeshift beef stalls had been set up nearly two months ago after the old markets were demolished to give way for a new market. 

Bajrang Dal and VHP leaders in Ullal had previously appealed to the police and Ullal CMC commissioner to clear these stalls, dubbing them as illegal ‘beef stalls’. The stalls were owned by M C Bava, M C Khader and Haneef.
