Seer gets police protection following threats

The Kudalasangama Panchamalsali Peetha Jayamruthajaya Swamiji has been given police protection.  

The police said that protection has been provided to the seer after his critical remarks against the Veerashaiva sect at the recent Lingayata Swatantra Dharma Samavesha in Hubli recently. The seer has been getting threats to his life and safety since then.  

Some callers from Ramadurga taluk, Belgavi and Mudebihala taluk, Vijayapura and Minajagi have been threatening the seer on phone. Police said that the callers used foul language and threatening the seer.  

Cases have been registered at the Hanagunda and Ramadurga police stations.  

The police escorted the seer from Jamkandi to Badami on Tuesday where the seer said that he had not asked the police for protection and they had chosen to give it themselves.
