Mangaluru: A rally demanding a ban on cow slaughter was scheduled to be held under the joint aegis of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Go Samrakshana Samiti on Nehru maidan in the city on Monday, July 13.
Last Thursday, at a meeting of the top brass of police, it was decided to disallow it.
But on Friday, news was around that the permission had been granted. When asked for clarification, city police commissioner Murugan said that the organizers had appealed again agreeing to abide by certain conditions.
Now it is reliably known that the rally will go ahead, but at the revised timings of 12 noon to 3 pm and not beyond.
