The district Internet and Social Media Monitoring Cell has been closely monitoring the activities of anti-social elements active in social media websites, with built in nefarious designs to disturb peace and incite communal violence. The Superintendent of Police (SP) of Uttara Kannada has warned such elements of stringent action and has asked the public to stay away from such social networking groups and not fall prey to wild rumours aimed at fuelling communal tension.

The body of the missing right wing activist Paresh Kamalakara Mestha, a resident of Thulisinagar in the town, was found in a lake behind Shani temple on December 7. His disappearance and eventual death forced the situation to deteriorate further due to provocative messages circulated by anti-social elements on social media websites aimed at fuelling communal tension.
