Baliga Sisters Held During Protest Over Naresh Shenoy
Mangaluru: The Deshapremi Sanghatanegala Okkoota (Federation of Patriotic Organizations), staged a protest march from the Collector’s Gate Balmatta to MLA J R Lobo’s house here, on June 6.
The protesters shouted slogans against the police and the MLA for failing to arrest the main accused in the Vinayak Baliga murder case.
Leaders and members of various groups and organizations like the Rationalists’ Federation, DYFI, SFI and DSS marched in a procession towards MLA J R Lobo’s house and demanded justice but all the protesters including Baliga’s sisters were arrested by the police at Kadri, Shivabagh.
One of the protesters said, “Our demand that the main accused, who has been absconding since March 21, be arrested. Instead of arresting him, the police are arresting us for demanding justice. We will continue our agitation until the main accused is arrested.” He also said that the MLA of Mangaluru South Constituency, J R Lobo visited the house of Baliga after the murder, but so far no action has been taken to arrest the main accused. “We do not want to disturb anyone, but the family members of Baliga should get justice,” he added.
Vinayak Baliga was murdered on March 21 by contract killers. In this connection, five people have been arrested and the investigation is still on.
More than 60 members including Baliga’s two sisters and niece, Prof Narendra Nayak, Muneer Katipalla, Gerald Towers and Nithin Kuthar were arrested by the police.
