Mangaluru: Home minister K J George visited the city after inaugurating the police stations at Sullia and Puttur here, on September 7.
He held a meeting with the police officers and also spoke with mediapersons regarding the recent attack on Shakir in Attavar. He said that immoral policing will not be tolerated. Those who are involved in the Attavar attack case will be punished severely; a rowdy sheet will be opened against them and they will be expelled from the district, if needed.
He further said that the police have done a wonderful job by nabbing the culprits in the Attavar attack and their work is praiseworthy. There are anti social elements who are trying to create communal violence. Those who take law in their hands will be punished severely, he added.
When asked about Dr M M Kalburgi’s murder case, the HM said that the CID is investigating the case. If there is need to hand over the case to the CBI for investigation, we will surely do it, he said.
To curb drug menace in the district, the Superintendent has been given authority and the police have taken all the measures in this regard. The officials also visited various taluks for review.
District Minister in-charge Ramanath Rai, DC A B Ibrahim, ADGP Alok Mohan, Police Commissioner S Murugan, IGP (western range) Amrit Paul, SP Dr Sharanappa and SP of Udupi Annamalai were present.
