Udupi: Unidentified miscreants threw the head of a cow in front of the house of Prabhakar Sherigar on the night of December 6, at Subhasnagara, Shankerpura.
As the news spread, hundreds of people gathered in front of the house and demanded for a proper enquiry and stern action against the miscreants. The incident could be aimed at provoking the Hindu community. According to Prabhakar, this is the second time that the head of a cow was thrown near his house. The same incident had happened a few months back and he had buried it without informing the police.
Udupi SP Annamalai along with DCIB Inspector Jaishanker rushed to the spot and assured the public that the police department were keeping a close watch on the situation. “Our efforts are also on to nab the culprits who are involved in this heinous act. To control the situation additional police force has been deployed,” he added. The head of the cow has been sent for medical test.
A case has been registered in the Shirva Police Station.
