Mangaluru Chalo Bike rally: BJP workers detained in Kundapur and Karkala
Kundapur/Karkala: Police have detained around 361 BJP activists participating in the Mangaluru Chalo bike rally, organised in response to the call given by the BJP Yuva Morcha, in Kundapur and Karkala taluk on Wednesday, September 6.
Over 215 activists, led by MLC Kota Srinivas Poojary and other leaders arrived on bikes to Shasthri Circle Kundeshwar temple where the bike rally was to commence.
The police, who were present in large numbers, asked the activists not to take out the rally as no permission was granted. When the activists tried to go ahead with the rally, police detained them and took around 215 persons into custody. They were, however, released later.
Meanwhile 101 activists led by Karkala MLA Sunil and other leaders were arrested while trying to take out the bike rally in Hebri.
