B Upendran | HENB | Hassan | Oct 25, 2022:: Tension prevailed for a couple of hours at Bharamappa Layout in Shivamogga (Karnataka) on Monday night, when a Hindu person was attacked by three unknown people.
Prakash, 25, a resident of the layout, was attacked around 11.30 p.m. Three people, who came by bike, threw stones at him. They were heard shouting Islamic slogans including Allah-ho-Akbar and passing filthy comments against Hindus threatening them, as reported. The real motive of the attack is not clear yet.
Shivamogga SP G.K. Mithun Kumar informed the media that Prakash suffered head injuries. “According to doctors, he suffered minor head injuries and is safe. We are investigating the case”, he said. Mr. Prakash is undergoing treatment at McGann Hospital in the city.
Fortunately, Prakash escaped from a spate of fatality. It is told that Prakash is a Hindutva activist as known in the locality.
Senior police officers visited the spot and dispersed people gathered after learning about the incident. The district administration has deployed policemen at Seegehatti, Bharamappa Layout and neighbouring areas.
The city has witnessed a series of incidents since the murder of Harsha, a Hindutva activist, earlier this year.
Police are finding the cause of such attacks from various angles.
A case has been registered at Doddapete police station and a manhunt has been launched to nab the accused.
Police took strict measures not to escalate the law and order situation during the Diwali fest all around.
