Rwanda has released Hakki-Pikki people, says SP

Superintendent of Police Abhinav Ashok Khare has stated that the 11 people belonging to Hakki-Pikki community of Shivamogga, who were reportedly detained in Rwanda last week, were released on October 8.

Speaking to DH, Khare said “it is still not clear whether they were only interrogated or arrested. Besides, we still don’t know the reason for the detention.Things will become clear when they come back.”

It may be mentioned that 11 members of the community, who hail from Sadashivapura village of Shivamogga taluk had left for Rwanda last month to sell herbal medicine. The family members had submitted a memorandum to officials last week urging the authorities to ensure the release for the11 members who were in Rwanda.
