Bantwal : The police officials, investigating Bajrang Dal activist, Rajesh Poojary’s murder case, have been accused of arresting innocent Muslim youths on false charges, here recently. He was killed on March 21 in Bantwal taluk.

The arrested youths are residents of Mallur taluk. Their families have alleged unjust behaviour on part of the police due to pressure brought upon by members of the Sangh Parivar. Innocent youths belonging to poor families were arrested without any evidence, they said.

The families have also said that Hussain, Irshad and Imran who are accused of Rajesh Poojary’s murder, neither belong to any political party nor do they have connections with any group or organization. They have been put behind bars and also denied bail. They are said to have been beaten up and forcibly made to confess to a crime which they have not committed.

The families blamed that the police have buckled under the pressure of saffron organizations who had demanded the arrest of the culprits before March 31. To avoid adverse reaction, the police have falsely implicated innocent youths, they claimed.

A protest rally was organised by Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) led by District President, Muneer Katipalla in Mangalore on May 27. Family members of the arrested youths and the DYFI intend to hold a 24-hour long hunger strike in front of the deputy commissioner’s office for a fair reinvestigation in the case on June 4.Courtesy:Karnataka muslims
