On thorough interrogation the accused revealed their names as;
- Harish S/o Bhoja Karkera 30 yrs R/o Munchur Mangalore taluk
- Ganesh S/o Dinesh Poojary 22 yrs R/o Madya Mangalore taluk
Their enquiry also revealed that they along with the other three (who ran away) belong to the Hindu Jagarana Vedike and are all involved in several communal incidents in the past.
A case has been taken up against them in Surathkal PS charging them for carrying deadly weapons (sec 27 Arms Act) and assembling to commit dacoity or other such serious offence (Sec 399, 402 IPC).
The accused will be produced before the jurisdictional Magistrate after completing their interrogation and other procedural formalities.
The names and other details of the other three escaped accused have been obtained. Efforts are on to trace them.
Thus it can be inferred that the timely intervention of the police and arest of the culprits has helped in averting a major criminal incident in the area.
