Mangaluru: Condemning the inflammatory graffiti that surfaced in the coastal city on Sunday, days after it witnessed a similar wall writing, MLA UT Khader said that accused should be arrested immediately.
Addressing presspersons with this regard he said, “Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa led BJP government and the state police department should arrest The culprits responsible for this ‘unpardonable’ act immediately.”
“The police should arrest the culprits within a week or maximum fifteen-day if now we will hold a protest,” Khader warned.
“Now that BJP is in power, people are trying to create a divide among people by supporting terror outfits, as long as I remember such incidents never happened when Congress government was in power,” he said.
Khader also added that the police must not only arrest the accused but also probe if anyone is behind this act.
Another inflammatory graffiti surfaced in the coastal city on Sunday, days after it witnessed a similar wall writing and according to police, the graffiti appeared on the wall of a house here.
Soon after receiving information, police rushed to the spot, erased the message and registered a case against unknown persons for creating enmity between communities and defacing public property.
The Mangaluru Commissioner Vikash Kumar said the graffiti was written around the same time the first one appeared but came to notice later.
A case has been registered under the Public Disfigurement Act, he added.
On November 26, the 12th anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba, inflammatory graffiti hailing the terrorist group had appeared on the wall of an apartment complex here.
The graffiti read, “Do not force us to invite Lashkar-e-Toiba and Taliban to deal with Sanghis and Manuvadis. #Lashkar Zindabad.”
Regarding the November 26 message, police said three teams have been formed to identify the culprits
