Kundapur: Following a clash between two communities on Sunday evening police held a meeting with the members of both the communities on Monday evening January 12.
Speaking on the occasion a victim woman accused police of targeting one community and protecting the other. She also suspected that the police is supporting one community to indulge in these kind of anti social acts. She also said that Gandhiji dream was, everyone must walk freely on the road even on the midnight. But in the present situation of Kodi youth scared to walk on the road even soon after dusk falls. Police must take proper action against the culprits.
Some people strongly condemned the police who use abusive words while speaking to the people. Recently a peace meeting was held in the same region in which the police department assured the people of Kodi that they will curb these kinds of incidents in the future. But its only few months now and the Hindu youths are being attacked again. So what is the use of holding these kinds of peace talks, argued the locals.
Responding to all the queries of the people circle inspector of Kundapur Diwakar PM said, “You people are living in Kodi since many generations. Yes, police department agrees that the community clashes occure more in this region than any other place. But the people who are doing this are not insiders, they are outside people. Police department will definitely thwart these kind incidents in the future. The department is planning to install CC cameras in Kodi, Halavalli, Koteshwara and in some other sensitive areas, he said.
Taluk municipal member Manju Billava, Village municipal member Nagaraj Billava, Janaki Billava, Markod Sudheer Kumar Shetty were present.
