In yet another incident, a group of Hindutva activists allegedly assaulted a man and paraded him semi-naked for what they claimed as illegal transportation of cattle. Strangely the victim is a hindu, Manjaiah Naika (28), a resident of Puravarga in the taluk.   It is said that the activists waylaid the vehicle in which Naika was transporting a calf. Suspecting that he was supplying the calf to a minority community, they thrashed him black and blue. They later paraded him semi-naked till the police station. The police took the victim into custody but did not arrest the attackers for taking law into their hands. Severely brusied Naika is being treated at a hospital here. Bhatkal SI Revathi is investigating the case.
