  1. The name Bannanje is associated with scholars like Bannanje Govindacharya. This rogue character should not have the privilege of such a name. Just call him B Raja if you will. Don’t spoil the dignity of the name Bannanje. Finish the investigations quickly and sentence him. Disgrace to our twin districts.

  2. It’s hard not to see the level of incompetence shown by our authorities here. Our govt clearly knows that this guy is a notorious criminal involved in many cases. If so, why allow him dress like a college student? I can’t tell if he is going to attend a party or Udupi police station. Also, why parade him in a such an open, public view when he has so many potential allies and enemies ? Don’t we all know the incident when a guy tried to kill Muthappa Rai near Madikeri Court back in 90s?

    And, finally, in this DNA age, do they really have to take this high-price catch from town to town in order to continue the investigation? Can’t they hold him in a high security prison and get officials from different towns to complete the investigation?

  3. Fixed match!
    Fully pre-planned arrest drama
    Pseudo proceedings
    Lucky ….. becomes millionaire overnight
    Obviously lack of ANY evidence (everything erased or silenced) and swift bail …
    Finally ………… “smiling don” of ALL the crimes
    (remember Muttappa Rai?)

    Free from all the charges, Politics/Social service starts…YES!
    Another Kannada Sene?
    Threaten industries, real estate and people
    Rule & mine Karnataka & SK? Or Mumbai too?
    While a dodo yet most-corrupt CM laughs..along with our shameless, selfish SK politicians 🙁
    Jai Ho!

  4. Why is this man not handcuffed? Based on the number of charges he is facing, he should have been in hand and leg shackles. How can the police overlook this simple required procedure for serious criminals? Why is he held above the law? Even when they arrest for other minor offenses one can notice that they are at the least handcuffed! The police and state government must have spent millions to locate, arrest, extradite, and bring him back. If they don’t secure this criminal how long will it take for a few well equipped gang members to over power the police and help him escape? And why is he not wearing some form ‘prisoner’ uniform?
