Meanwhile, Mr. Manjappa and other police staff took the HJV activists to task for their “moral policing”.
A group of five students, who were on a picnic, were threatened by a group of Hindu Jagrana Vedike (HJV) at Koteshwar village near Kundapur on Monday evening.
The HJV activists, who came to know about the trip, waited for them at the overpass road at Koteshwar.
But when the activists started arguing with them, the police registered a security case against eight activists of HJV, including Aravind Koteshwar, Ashok, Anil, Sampath and Rakesh.
When the students reached the spot in a car later, the activists stopped the vehicle and stated questioning them.
