Police gearing up to deal with post Ayodhya verdict

Addressing at a peace meeting convened by District In-Charge Minister J Krishna Palemar at the Deputy Commissioner’s Office here on Monday, Singh said that flag march will be organised to instil confidence in people. “Action will be taken against those who send provocative SMSes and cases will be booked against those who spread rumours,” he warned.

Sub inspectors of all police stations have been asked to convene peace meetings in their limits, involving religious leaders, thereby impressing the public to co-operate with the police to maintain harmony.
Singh said that the police will also send SMSes appealing citizens to co-operate with the police and not to resort to violence in protest against the court verdict.

‘No victory procession’
Superintendent of Police Dr A Subramanyeshwar Rao said that security will be beefed up in all towns across the district.

He warned that no organisation will be allowed to hold victory processions or protest rallies on the High Court verdict. Minister Palemar directed that the police should take stern action in case of any untoward incident.

Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj said that it was a good sign that people themselves have come forward to maintain peace and harmony in the society. He appealed people to adhere to law and co-operate with the district administration.

‘Leaders united’
Leaders, cutting across all political and religious sections of the society, unanimously declared that they will extend all co-operation to the police department and the district administration to maintain peace in the district on September 24 and following days. 
Mangalore MLA U T Khader said that less than one per cent of the population indulge in anti-social activities. Police should isolate such miscreants and take action against them, he said adding that all habitual offenders should be  rounded up as a precautionary measure.  Mangalore South MLA N Yogish Bhat said that reglious leaders should warn youth not to carry out victory procession. People should respect the Court verdict by maintaining peace in the society, he pleaded.
