MANGALURU: ADGP (Law and Order) Kamal Pant, applauding the presence of mind shown by Home Guard Harish and six cops in nabbing all four accused youth within hours after the brutal murder, handed over a cash reward of `1.20 lakh to them at the commissioner of police hall.
“It is real good work,” Kamal Pant said while disbursing cheques to Mulki ASI Chandrashekar, probationary SI Sheethal Alaguru, CCB Inspector Shantharam, and Panambur Inspector Rafeeq. Recollecting the incidents that followed after the murder, ADGP said Home Guard volunteer Harish manning a check post tipped off police when the accused youth’s getaway car made a sharp turn near the check post.
ASI Chandrashekar, probationary SI Sheethal Alaguru, quickly gave a chase and fired many rounds from their service pistols at the car. Finally, Chandrashekar succeeded in stopping the vehicle. “Police then succeeded in arresting Naushad and Mohammed Irshan,” Kamal Panth said. Two others, Rizwan and Pinky Nawaz, who had escaped from the place were arrested at Daddiguri in Bajpe police station limits.
