Banwal: Unidentified Masked Gang Attacks Student Returning Home near SVS College

Bantwal: Ilyas (17), a student of Adarsh College in Mangaluru and resident of Barekad in Loreto Padavu, was stopped and assaulted by a group of masked men on Monday evening.

He was returning home after classes riding his bike from Mangaluru. Near the SVS college, he stopped by four men who arrived in two bikes.

They abused him in obscene terms and also attacked him. On receiving a complaint from him, sub-inspector Nandakumar arrived at the spot and registered a case.

According to intelligence sources, there has been a growing trend of mistrust and mischief among some elements from two major communities.

Attempts are being made to ignite a communal flare-up,even if it comes to fatally or partially injure persons from the other camp, just to provoke each other.

In the bargain, it is the innocent persons who become pawns in the game played by forces behind the scenes, according to them.
