Bangalore: Representatives of the Karnataka United Muslim Forum have said that they are in the possession of a video CD on the police atrocities during the recent Mangalore riots and are ready to give it to the State Government.

Speaking to presspersons here on Friday, Manzoor A.S., convener of the forum, said they would give the CD to the Government only if it promised to take stringent action against those involved in provoking the riots and targeting innocent persons.

The forum has threatened to hold protests if the Government failed to take action against the guilty.

He alleged that Dakshina Kannada Superintendent of Police Dayanand and police officials, who were in charge of controlling the riots, failed to discharge their duties properly.

Minister blamed

District in-charge Minister Nagaraj Shetty did not take any action to check the atrocities against minorities during the riots and was also involved in provoking the riots, he charged.
