In yet another shocking incident in Mangalore, Sri Ram Sene activists on Friday allegedly abducted the daughter of a Kerala MLA and her male friend because both belonged to different religion but were talking and travelling together in a public bus. According to reports Sene activists allegedly barged into the bus and picked up the girl, Shruti, and the boy and took them away in an autorickshaw. Shruti said Ram Sene activists were angered by the fact that her companion was a Muslim. However, both of them were set free after a few hours. Her father and Kerala MLA CH Kunhambu he suspected Ram Sene to be behind the abduction. “I strongly believe that Sri Ram Sene and Bajrang Dal activists were behind this incident. The boy was from a different community. They were going back to their college after vacations. I have filed complaints with the police,” he said. “The incident happened in the afternoon. I believe that the driver and conductor of the bus are involved in the incident. They contacted these gundas (anti-socials) to attack. She was forcibly taken away in an auto,” he added. Karnataka Western Range Inspector General AM Prasad said Shruti was returning from her native place when the incident happened. She was reportedly taken in an autorickshaw, but was released soon after. Her male friend was also released later and both are said to be safe. Mangalore Superintendent of Police N Sathish Kumar told that a police team has gone to Shruti’s local guardians’ house in Mangalore for recording of statement. Shruti and her friend are students of second year pre-university course at the St Alosyius College in the city. The boy has been identified as Shabib and is the brother of Shruti’s classmate. Sri Ram Sene has been in news after storming a pub in Mangalore on January 24 and beating up young women present there.
