Two protesters died in police firing. 60 people, including an additional commissioner, have been injured. At the same time, the nephew of Karnataka MLA Akhand Srinivasamurthy has been arrested on charges of writing the post. With this, over 200 people have been arrested in this case so far till now.
On Tuesday, on the night of August 11, people of a particular community, angry with a post about Paigambar Sahab in Pulakeshi Nagar, Bangalore sabotaged and set a fire outside the residence of Congress MLA, Akhand Srinivas Murthy. However, police have arrested 110 people on charges of spreading violence. A name has emerged in these, whose organization’s strings were linked to the Delhi riots. Seeing the uncontrollable violence, the police had to shoot. Two people lost their lives in this firing. Police have arrested the nephew of the MLA who posted the objectionable post on Facebook.
The Bangalore Police has arrested the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) leader Muzamil Pasha on charges of inciting violence in the DJ Hallali police station area. It is being told that it was Mujamil Pasha who gathered the crowd and incited violence due to an alleged post about the Paigambar Sahab. While the state government has described this entire violence as ‘planned’.
Four teams have also been formed to investigate the case of Bangalore violence in which three people were killed and nearly 60 police individuals suffered injuries.
It is to be noted here that the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) is the political organization of the Islamic fundamentalist Popular Front of India (PFI). And even more surprising is that the time of riots in Delhi during the protest against CAA, the name of the same organization PFI also emerged in it. Not only this, but the Enforcement Directorate had also filed a case of money laundering on the PFI as well.
At the same time, MLA Srinivas Murthy has appealed to the people to maintain peace on this whole matter. The legislator said, “I Akhand Srinivas Murthy appeals to all the Muslim brothers for peace and calm. I will sit with them and resolve this matter.”
