​Gang assaults pilgrims at Kajur Dargah


Belthangady: In an incident reported, a gang allegedly assaulted a few pilgrims who had come on a visit to Kajur Dargah on Thursday evening.

The injured were Mohammad Misbah (16), Saifuddin (15), Nizamuddin (15), Rahuddin (14), Fazil (17) and Munaf (21); all from Chikkamagaluru.

It is said that as the pilgrims were having a bath in the Netravathi River near Kajur Dargah, a gang arrived at the spot in an auto and assaulted them with sticks. They forcibly took the pilgrims to Kolli Temple and made them to give offerings for having bath at the spot known as ‘Devara Gundi.’

Sources say that the pilgrims kept their footwear on a platform near the temple and that resulted in a clash. The locals admitted the injured to a government hospital at Belthangady.

Surendra Poojary, Shanthappa and Prabhakar Poojary are absconding and are alleged to be behind the attack. A case was registered.
