PFI plays moral cops

07 October 2009

An incident where members of an organization allegedly abducted a man and woman, of different communities, because they were seen in each other's company sent the police into a tizzy here on Tuesday.

According to sources, the members of the organization from Popular Front of India objected to the girl being seen in the company of a boy from another community at a hotel near the DC's office.

Amit Singh, assistant superintendent of police, Mangalore sub-division said there was no complaint either from the parents or relatives of either the man or the woman, said to be from Beluvai near Moodbidri nor have their identities been officially ascertained. However, the police has launched a manhunt for the couple based on the information available to them about the incident, he said adding efforts are on to ascertain the truth of the matter.

PFI leaders who confirmed the incident to a section of the media denied assaulting the man. The woman has been restored to her parents and warned not to indulge in such behaviour, the PFI leader was quoted as saying to the media.

A police officer from the jurisdictional Mangalore South PS said people who gave us information about the incident did not give us workable details. Yet we are following up on the same, he said.
