'Astrologers' seek sexual favour,  get thrashed
Local residents thrashed two astrologers for misbehaving and cheating several women in Kamalagar on Saturday.

According to police, Mohan (28) and Prithvi (29), both from Tamil Nadu, claimed themselves as astrologers and were running  ‘Chowdeshwari Jyothishalaya.’ They used to approach women saying that they would solve the miseries in their life.  The duo were seeking sexual favour in the guise of performing pooja for their welfare. They had also cheated several women of their money, said the police. A few women had approached a pro-Kannada organisation, the members of which ransacked their office and thrashed the duo. No one has registered any plaint so far and even the two are not traceable, added the police.
