Karkala: Miscreants Set Fire to Spreadsheet on Tomb in Parpalegudde – Four Arrested

Karkala: In what appears to be another attempt at creating rift in the society, the spreadsheet (‘chadar’) put on a tomb on Parpalegudde near here was found partly charred around the weekend.

The tomb is held in reverence by Muslims as Tipu Sultan cave and prayers are held on Fridays and Sundays by the community members residing around the place.

Others have recently begun to call the hill Krishnagiri and the name of the cave for them is Ambarish cave now.

After the prayer session on Friday, the community members had spread the chadar over the tomb. A group led by Anil Prabhu, town convener of Bajrang Dal, got into the cave and set it on fire.

On receiving the news, the police, in order to prevent further trouble, arrested four of them – Anil Prabhu, Atmananda, Akshay Shetty Doopadakatte and Raghavendra Gundaje – while Deepu Nakre, Ganesh and Ranjan are said to be absconding.

Udupi SP Annamalai, accompanied by Karkala ASP Dr Suman Pernekar, visited the spot and ensured that there was no flare-up after the incident.
