Man stabbed in retaliation to Deepak Rao’s murder dies

Mangaluru: Days after battling for his life, 47-year-old Basheer who was attacked following the death of 27-year-old BJP activist Deepak Rao, succumbed to his injuries at a private hospital in Mangaluru this morning.

The State Government has released a solatium of Rs. 10 lakh for Basheer’s family.

Basheer, a fast-food joint owner, was injured after he was attacked on Jan. 3 by a group of men wielding lethal weapons as he was returning home. Meanwhile, Basheer’s kin told the media that their family has decided not to hold a funeral procession. “Only close members of the family will be allowed to see the body,” they said.

The Police had earlier arrested P.K. Srijith, a 25-year-old man from Uppala, Kishan Poojary and Dhanush Poojary, brothers from Padil near Mangaluru, and Sandesh Kotian, a 22-year-old from Manjeshwaram in Kasaragod, for the murder.

While Basheer was a resident of Akasha Bhavana, approximately 11 km from Katipalla, where Deepak was found murdered, the Police have not established any connection between the two deceased victims. The Police said that the four people arrested just wanted to take revenge for Deepak’s death.

On being alerted, two off-duty ambulance drivers, Rohit and Chandrashekar Kulai, attempted to save Basheer’s life by driving him to AJ Hospital in their ambulance.

As soon as the news of Basheer’s death spread this  morning, hundreds of his family members, well-wishers and friends gathered at the AJ Hospital mortuary to pay their last respects. Former District Minister In-charge Krishna J. Palemar visited the hospital but the relatives stopped him from viewing Basheer’s body.

    Another opportunity for Congress! To award this man , state funeral! Also, suddenly the pseudo secular gang will start screaming about why Modi is silent on Basheer’s murder! Last week the CM advised all the other political parties not to politicize the death of Deepak Rao! Now, let’s see how he follows his own advise!
    It provides material for next weeks column “point of view”. Lots of Chinese and Paki new paper will print their spin on this murder which will provide enough materia to anti Hindu rant that he can readily copy!

    An innocent man who was not even a prominent BJP man was killed by a hired thug and his family gets 5 Lakhs compensation! The thug is attacked because the government had a known reputation of going soft on a Muslim killer and the thug dies! Now, Givernment gives 10 Lakhs compensation, with no question asked!

    Both were citizens of our country, Humanity is more than any religion, no one have the right to take others life for what so ever reason.
    police should have encountered both case culprits while chasing to catch them to set an example.
    One Enquiry commission will be working to find out cause of encounter for decades with no result at end.
    Efficient police officer should do this before Mangalore become more worst. Encounter is the only answer left for to restore peace in Mangalore.
