Mangaluru: CCB police have arrested Four persons in connection with the attempt to murder case at Ullal said police commissioner Chandra Sekhar in a press meet held at the commissioner’s office, here on April 28.
The arrested have been identified as Rahul R alias back Rahul (20) from Thokkottu, Pavan Raj (20), Thokkottu, Edwin Rahul D’Souza alias Pucche Rahul (18) from Kotekar and Karthik (19) from Kotekar.
According to police, all the four are directly involved in both the crimes. Pavan Raj was involved in the attempt to murder case of Lancy D’Souza in 2015 at Chembu Gudde and he has released on bail three months ago. Another accused Karthik was involved in a dacoity case in 2015 and he has released on bail 2 months ago.
Chandra Sekhar further said that some anti-social elements are trying to disturb peace in the city by holding protests and assemblies without permission, To avoid any untoward incidents and ensure peace and safety in the city we have imposed section 144 from 6:00 am on April 29 to 6:00 pm April 30. Our intention is not to trouble the public but to ensure safety and peace in the city.
Chandra Sekhar also said that we have arrested 5 persons involved in two cases in the Ullal station limits on April 26. On April 26, at around 12:50 am an assault was reported on Ibrahim Naspaan, a resident of Ullal. Based on the clues, police arrested Shivraj alias Shiva (18) of Kumpala on April 27. Now we have arrested four more accused who are directly involved in both the cases.
When asked what action will be taken against two of the teenagers who are involved in crime, Chandra Sekhar said that the youth are choosing the wrong path, in this regard we have met the community leaders and they have rendered their support and agreed to help in counselling the youth. The youth can never escape from the hands of the law. We will counsel them and try to change their mindset through trained counselors. We will also coordinate with the community leaders in this process.
We also believe in correcting the youth, so that they will not involve in any crime. The moment a person commits a crime, the society will distance itself from the person which will create a problem for the person, so we need more support from the Society.
Edwin Rahul D’Souza is studying in PUC and Karthik is a Diploma student both studying in different colleges in the city
We have also heard that some organizations are planning to hold protests and processions without permission. So to avoid illegal processions and assemblies from taking place we have imposed Section 144 in the city for two days.
When asked about Baliga murder case, Chandra Sekhar said that the verdict on bail will be out on April 29.
DCP crime Dr Sanjeev Patil and DCP law and order Shantharaj were also present.
