    • Under the leadership of Vishwa Hindu Parishat and Bajrang Dal, a protest rally followed by road blockade, was organized on Tuesday January 5, at Mudipu Junction near here, condemning the failure of the department of police in finding out the whereabouts of Ramya Shetty, who had disappeared from her home in Pottolike in Naringana village sometime ago.

      Local leaders of the Hindu outfits, Rajaram Bhat, district Seva Pramukh of Vishwa Hindu Parishat, Sudarshan Moodbidri, and Bajrang Dal district convener, Sharan Pumpwell, addressed the protestors.

    • In the habeas corpus petition filed in the High Court, Shivaprasad, brother of Ramya Shetty, had expressed dissatisfaction over the efforts put in by the police department relating to the disappearance of his sister. He had alleged that Mohammed, father of two, who worked for sometime as mason in his house, had kidnapped Ramya Shetty and had forcibly converted her into Islam. The High Court had given time to the policemen till December 29 to find her out. As the policemen, who visited various places to find her, failed in their efforts and sought more time, it has been granted by the High Court.
