79 persons Go Missing in Five Months in Police Commissionerate!
Mangaluru: “In the Police commissionerate, 76 persons have gone missing from January 2017 to May 31, 2017, and 69 missing persons cases have been registered”, said the DCP Crime and Traffic Hanumantharaya to the Expert Committee on Preventing Sexual Violence against Women and Children during the meeting at the DC office here on August 1.
DCP Hanumantharaya said that 40 missing cases are under investigation, 29 persons have been traced. In 22 cases we are yet to trace 17 boys and 5 girls.
During the meeting, Hameed whose 24-year-old daughter has been missing from past two years said, “I am trying to trace my daughter from the past two years. The police are not showing interest to trace my daughter. If the police take up the investigation in a right direction they can trace my daughter within an hour.
Responding to this DCP Hanumantharaya said, “In 2014 Hameed’s daughter was missing and we had investigated the case. The parents filed the Habius Corpus to the High court. According to the order of the court, we have formed a special investigation team.”
MLC Ugrappa said, “Since it is a two-year old case, DCP-level officers should take special interest in investigating this case. Within a month the report should be submitted to the expert committee.”
In Beltangady, unnatural deaths have been increased. The district administration should take these issues seriously and form a special study team and submit the report. Immoral policing should be dealt with a heavy hand and goonda act should be imposed against those involved.
According to the Sex ratio in 2001, the district had 1019 females per 1000 males. Now in 2017, it has come down to 947 females per 1000 males. What is the reason behind this? The district administration should submit a report to the Expert Committee”, said Ugrappa
