Mangaluru: Notices would be served on 176 police officers and staff to appear for hearing on the December 19 firing on anti-CAA protestors in the city, Udupi deputy commissioner G Jagadeesha, conducting the magisterial probe into the incident, said on Thursday.

Addressing reporters here, he said officials, including the city police commissioner P S Harsha, would be summoned to depose on the violence which led to police firing that killed two persons.

Mangaluru (north) assistant commissioner K U Belliappa, who is the nodal officer for the police department, has given a list of 176 policemen who are ready to adduce evidence in the hearing.

The police officers would be summoned in phases.

The next hearing is on February 25.

He said so far, 203 members of the public have deposed before him on the incident.

Former city mayor K Ashraf, who is under treatment in hospital, has also provided a written statement.

The remaining members of the public can provide evidence during next hearings, he said.

On December 19, two persons were killed in police firing as protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) turned violent here.

The protesters had attempted to besiege the Mangaluru North police station and tried to attack police personnel, following which force was used to disperse them, police had said.

Two persons received bullet injuries in the firing and they later succumbed at a hospital, they said.
