Intelligence reports indicate that terrorists and radical elements have taken shelter in coastal Karnataka as well as areas in and around Shivamogga for long. The problem is gradually catching up in many places in the state.
New Delhi, Aug 16: Shivamogga is witnessing its second incident of a Hindu man being attacked in the past six months. While in February a Hindu activist Harsha was murdered, now one Prem Singh has been stabbed and the accused have been identified as Nadeem (25), Abdul Rehman (25) and Jabiullah.
The arrests took place a day after Singh was stabbed in the Gandhi Bazar area of Shivamogga in Karnataka hours after a row erupted over a poster of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar which was put up at the Ameer Ahmed Circle on Independence Day. Two groups clashed over installing a poster of Savarkar and Tipu Sultan on Monday.
