Moodbidri: Attitude of intolerance and acts of immoral goondaism have been on the rise in the two districts.
Interaction and mingling of men and women from different communities is being treated as an unpardonable crime and severe breach of law. As the memories of the infamous Shakir assault case remained fresh in the public minds, another incident of similar kind has taken place in Subhas Nagar in Kotebagilu near here.
The wife of Hasanabba and her son have been living in Kotebagilu without any male member to help. Hence she had asked her immediate neighbour Yuvaraj to bring medicines from a pharmacy on Tuesday night, which he readily obliged to do.
Resenting this, her brother Hasanabba, who also lives in the neighbourhood, assisted by relatives Mohammed Monu and Akbar, is said to have assaulted the woman and Yuvaraj.
She has filed a complaint against the assailants with the police, who have registered a case against them.
