MANGALURU: Close on the heels of an attack on a head constable in Car Street, four police personnel including an assistant sub-inspector were injured after they were manhandled by four inebriated engineering college students in the wee hours of Saturday. Police have arrested all and booked them under Indian Penal Code 307 (attempt to murder) and IPC 186 (obstructing a public servant).
The arrested have been identified as Nithin, resident of Chikkamagaluru; Harsh from Mandya; Jeenu of Shivamogga and RIthik from Sakleshpur. All the arrested aged 22, study in the same college and stay in same paying guest (PG) accommodation.
On Friday night, four of them had gone to Panambur beach on two bikes. Around 1.30 am, after partying, while they were on their way to PG, they pelted stones at a parked container vehicle, whose driver immediately informed police on duty at Kulur checkpost. The information was passed to all other police stations from the control room.
When four drunken students reached Kulur checkpost, police tried to stop them but one of the bikes managed to escape from the spot. Two students who were behind attacked police and damaged their rifle. They fled from the spot and later hit their bike to ASI’s vehicle attached to Mangaluru North police station and assaulted him. ASI has injured his ankle. However, they were secured by other police on duty.
A few hours later, police arrested two others who escaped to reach their PG. A case has been registered at Kavoor police station.
