Udupi MLA Pramod Madhwaraj rushed to Manipal police station and demanded the arrest of the accused. “There are 20 auto rickshaw stands in Manipal and 800 auto drivers operate there. Police have urged auto drivers to pass on information about the accused to the police. This incident has brought a bad name to Manipal and Udupi,’’ he said.
