4 students hurt in 'moral policing' act

Four of the six students travelling in the bus have got injured following the assault. They have been admitted to a private hospital in Mangalore. Rizwan, Shahid, Sadik and Rashid are the injured.

Of the six students, four were boys and two were girls, studying in a private engineering college at Benjanapadavu.

The miscreants, allegedly the members of certain Hindu fringe groups, stopped the bus and assaulted the students, for they belonged to two different communities.

As the news of the incident spread, people started gathering in large numbers, as a result of which tension prevailed in Vamanjoor for some time.

However, police arrived on the spot and dispersed the mob. “No cause for worry. The situation is normal now. A case has been registered and investigations are on,” Mangalore Rural Police Sub Inspector Prakash told Deccan Herald.

 Four members belonging to Hindu outfits have also been admitted to a private hospital.
When contacted, DK Superintendent of Police Dr A Subrahmanyeshwar Rao, who is out of station for a training, termed incident a minor one, and said additional police personnel were deployed in Vamanjoor as a precautionary measure.
