Udupi, August 6: Udupi District unit of Karnataka Dalit Sangharsha
Samithi, on Saturday, staged a protest dharna infront of the office of
the Superintendent of Police, here, demanding the arrest of advocate
Premaraj Kini, accused of cheating a Dalit family from Belthangadi, by
grabbing compensation money to the tune of 2.5 lakhs, by producing
forged documents, both to the court and the bank.
Speaking on the occasion chief convener of DSS Udupi district unit
Jayan Malpe alleged that though the Udupi Town Police were forced to
register a case against Premaraj, they had been delaying the arrest of
the advocate for the reasons unknown.
Noted thinker G Rajashekhar expressed concern over police inaction, in
spite of the aggrieved Dalits providing evidence for the forgery and
lodging a written complaint to the police. "Police shall atleast wake
up now and arrest the police. At this stage we will call our police
corrupt. But if they fail to arrest we will be forced to", Rajashekhar
Prof Phaniraj said that police should speed up action atleast for the
reason that the aggrieved party is a Dalit down trodden family.
Dalit activist Sundari Puttur, social activists Sriramam Diwana,
Dinkar Bengre and others participated in the protest.
