Mangaluru: Two days after two people succumbed to injuries due to police firing during Mangaluru violence on December 19, Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa has ordered a probe into the case on December 22. 

He had said an inquiry will be conducted into Thursday’s (December 19) violent protests in Mangaluru over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) that led to the killing of two people in police firing. Talking to reporters, he had stated that the nature of the inquiry will be decided after talks with the home minister and others but had refused to fix a time frame for completion of the probe.

The police recently obtained crowd-sourced videos of the Mangaluru violence, which showed the protesters pelting stones at police and trying to set a police station on fire. 

Irked over the behaviour of the protesters during the violent Mangaluru protests, Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar took to Twitter to condemn their act and said those who break the law will have to bear the consequence. 

He wrote, “Invstgatn into #Mangaluru violnce ordrd by @CMofKarnataka. Must reveal those “responsible” for conspiracy of violence n mayhem. 😡 #India is a nation of rights 4 citizns n BUT follwng rule of law is DUTY of citzns.✅ Those who break the law, hv to bear consquence.❌”

 

After the truth behind police firing was out, CM Yediyurappa on December 25 said solatium will not be given to their families if the duo were found involved in the riots.

The government would not give a single rupee to their families if the investigation proved the involvement of the two in the violence during the December 19 protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act, he told reporters in Mangaluru.

He was replying to a question on the government's stand on the compensation in view of demands opposing it after the two were named in the FIR.
