Mangaluru: Stating that thefts are increasing in temples, shrines and bhajana mandirs located within the City Police Commissionerate limits here, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) southern province secretary Sharan Pumpwell, said that they will hold large scale protests and other forms of agitation to condemn the police failure to capture the thieves.
Speaking at a protest on Monday September 20, organised at Neermarga junction here to condemn the failure of the police in arresting those responsible for the recent theft in Subrahmanya Bhajana Mandali, Neermarga, he said, “Hindu community cannot remain a mute spectator to all these developments.”
“Are you disinterested to nab the culprits behind these thefts? You are enthusiastic when arresting agitators who speak the truth. If you are unable to find out and catch the thieves, we may have to take this responsibility ourselves,” said Hindu Jagarana Vedike Mangaluru leader Ganaraj Bhat.
Sharan Pumpwell added that in connection with the increasing thefts from daivasthanas, temples, bhajana mandirs, houses and increasing chain snatching cases, the police commissioner was met and petition urging to nab the culprits at the earliest had been handed over, but so far the accused have not been found.
