Locals attack Kerala cops

Locals attack Kerala cops

They attempted to interrogate without City police support

The Kerala police team, led by Police Inspector Suneesh Babu, Palarivattom, Ernakulam, is now regretting for not seeking the help of the local police. Acting on specific information, the team landed at Nirmal Bora, a jeweller’s residence in Bharathinagar around 5.30 am and requested Nirmal’s wife, Mamtha Bora to co-operate with them in the investigation.

Not sure who they were, Mamtha brought the roof down crying for help. A group of locals who were coming out of a nearby mosque after their prayers, rushed for help.
Without identifying the plainsclothsmen, they attacked, stoned the cops’ vehicles and created a scene. Meanwhile, the cops’ efforts to convince the locals went in vain and they were forced to pack off.

It is not clear as to why the Kerala police did not inform the local police and take their assistance.  Sources said, the Kerala police team had arrested habitual burglar Sohail Pasha alias Rehman Pasha (30), from Tannery Road.

He, along with Thaukir Ahmed also from Bangalore, was involved in more than a dozen cases of theft in Ernakulam alone. Interestingly, the duo had successfully targeted a magistrate’s house in Palarivattom and had decamped with valuables.

In that connection, the jurisdictional police managed to arrest Sohail, but Rehman was still at large. During interrogation, Sohail had confessed to the crime and had also revealed that he had sold the stolen property to Nirmal Bora.  The cops had sought the custody of Sohail and had brought him to seize the property from Bora.
The two, Sohail, a graduate from Bangalore University and Rehman are wanted in DJ Halli, Bharatinagar and several other police stations in the City.

Meanwhile, police also confirmed that Nirmal Bora was in the habit of receiving stolen property.

Man dies in mishap

A 30-year-old man died in an accident on Kengeri Main Road on Monday late night.
Byatarayanapura traffic police gave the name of the deceased as Mahesh who worked for a mobile phone service provider. The deceased, a resident of Chunchunkuppe, Tavarekere, riding a two-wheeler, was heading home when the accident took place. After passing Hoysala Nagar Circle, near Kengeri Upanagara, a speeding truck rammed into his bike from behind.  The killer driver fled the scene.

Santosh, an eye witness told Deccan Herald : “An ambulance arrived at the spot but the driver of the ambulance played havoc. A profusely bleeding Mahesh was still uttering a few words, but the ambulance driver, instead of shifting the injured to the hospital, wasted precious moments in checking the patient. The delay in shifting proved costly and Mahesh died on the way to the hospital.”
