KSHRC takes up Mangalore pub case

Special Correspondent

Bangalore: The Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (KSHRC) has registered a suo motu case on the attack on women at a pub in Mangalore and warned that allowing private groups like Sri Rama Sene to enforce a moral code will “undeniably lead to anarchy” in the country.

“Such acts of hooliganism should be stopped for ever,” a KSHRC press note said. “What happened in Mangalore on January 24 is a terrible incident and the State should awake and do everything at its command to root out groups like Sri Rama Sene.”

Not the first time

It pointed out that Mangalore had repeatedly found itself in the middle of controversies over the last few months whether it was attacks on places of worship or moral policing.

In a stern warning, the KSHRC said: “It is not enough if the State law-enforcing authorities apprehend the culprits after the criminal acts are executed.”
