Mangaluru, Sep 4: MLA J R Lobo condemned the incident where it is alleged that police showed disrespect to Quran and tore Madrasa books while conducting a search in a house in connection to the murder of RSS worker Sharath Madivala.
Addressing media persons on Monday, September 4, Lobo said, “If the allegations against the police are true, they are highly condemnable. Police should be careful while handling such cases. They should not hurt the sentiments of any religion. A detailed investigation should be conducted into this incident and truth should come out at the earliest. I will write to IGP Hemanth Nimbalkar to look into this issue.”
“Anyone at fault, be the police or the complainant, should be punished. We do not want tension in the society. We should respect every religion. The Congress party endorses such views of secularism,” he added.
Corporator Lancelot Pinto and other Congress leaders were present.
