'Need to strengthen law to lessen crime'

Speaking after inaugurating the workshop, District Magistrate K B Chengappa opined that it is necessary for students to get equipped with legal knowledge. “Lack of stringent legal action against those involved in criminal activities has augmented the number of crime related cases. Youths are unafraid of the legal intercourse. Law should be strengthened to lessen the crime,” said Administrative Officer of Academy of General Education, Manipal, Dr H Shantharam.

Legal awareness should not be restricted only to claim the rights, rather it is also the expansion of respecting others’ right, he added. Principal of MGM College Prof Dr P Venkataramana Gowda and MGM PU College Principal Anasuya Karkera were present.
