Police nab 'moral police' group

Sources said three students of the college Dhanraj, Ashok and Vithesh (all III BBM) were irked by the fact that A R Sohail (II BBM student) and a girl (II BA) were friends. Hence, they reportedly called the moral police. Accordingly, a group of moral police barged into the college and had an heated argument with the principal, who quickly called the police.

The police arrived at the spot within minutes and nabbed nine persons. Confirming the same, Assistant Superintendent of Police Amit Singh told Deccan Herald that “the police reached the spot within minutes and caught the culprits red-handed for the first time ever since the moral policing began in the district.”
The Mangalore North police have filed cases against the accused under various sections including Sections 506 (Criminal intimidation), 504 (Intentional insult) and 147 (rioting).

Meanwhile, in a separate incident on Tuesday night, a group of 15 to 20 men belonging to Bajrang Dal barged into an apartment at Attavar in Mangalore and reportedly assaulted a man alleging conversion.
Speaking to Deccan Herald, Bajrang Dal Convenor Sharan Pumpwell said that they acted upon a complaint filed by a certain Shiva, who was allegedly forced by a certain Ripson and Ashalatha to covert.

When the group arrived at Ripson’s home, they reportedly found literature meant for conversion. Sharan Pumpwell said that Ripson and his group had already converted five persons and were planning to convert another 20. No one was arrested in this connection.
