BJP workers clash with police after Mangalore Chalo rally

Share

The BJP had a plan to hold a bike rally to protest the killing of Hindus in Mangalore.

Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha also demanded a ban on Social Democratic Party of India, Popular Front of India and Karnataka Forum for Dignity, describing them as "radical" outfits responsible for the "unrest" in coastal region.

The BJP defied prohibitory orders by various district police authorities to carry out the rally demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into killings of at least 23 workers (since September 2015) of right wing organizations like the Rashtriya Swayam Sangha (RSS), Bajrang Dal and the BJP, among other things, and criticizing the state government over the law and order situation in the state.

The workers even forcefully removed barricades put up to prevent them from marching towards rally point when they were taken into custody.
