DC's order stayed

 Muthalik had moved the High Court challenging the order by the deputy commissioner, Mangalore, who on the basis of the recommendations of Assistant Commissioner, Mangalore, had banned him from entering the coastal town. The order had stated that Muthalik being head of Sri Ram Sene, had supported the attack on pubs, where members of his organisation had allegedly attacked some women.

The deputy commissioner, in his order, had said that it was a precautionary measure to ensure peace by preventing hatred and communal violence. Muthalik, in his petition, denied any role in the attack on pubs and said that the order of the respondent was based on conjectures and wild imagination.

He said that the respondents had failed to furnish any date and information regarding the connection between the speeches delivered by him and the illegal activities disturbing the public life.

Counsel for Muthalik, Satish Chandra said that the order was mere apprehension and irrelevant and the State had curtailed the fundamental rights of the petitioner through this. Justice A S Pacchapure has stayed the order of the deputy commissioner.
