New Delhi, Feb.1 (ANI): The Women and Child Development Ministry on Sunday opted to send a two-member team to have an on-the-spot assessment of the incident.
The Ministry on Sunday sent a two-member team led by Joint Secretary Kiran Chada to Mangalore on a fact-finding mission, sources said. A deputy secretary in the ministry is the another member of the team that would visit the pub where young women and men were attacked allegedly by activists of Shri Ram Sena last week.
The NCW team, which went to Mangalore, had reportedly not submitted its report and the decision to send a new team was taken in view of the urgency of the matter.
Earlier, a three-member National Commission for Women (NCW) team had visited to Mangalore on a fact-finding mission in the vigilante put attack case.
On Saturday, the 28 Shri Rama Sene activists, including its president, Pramod Muthalik, and State vice-president Prasad Attavara, were released on conditional bail by Judicial Magistrate First Class II K.S. Vijaya. The accused were released after each of them provided Rs. 25,000 bail bond and the surety of one financially solvent person.
The bail does not alter Mr. Muthaliks judicial custody in the Mangalore sub-jail as the Suntikoppa police (Madikeri district) have issued a body warrant to the jail authorities demanding that he be handed over. (ANI)
