Violence over interfaith marriage in Karnataka, 25 arrested

KARNATAKA: 25 people have been arrested in connection with violence over interfaith marriage in Hulihaidar village in Karnataka's Koppal district that claimed two lives and injured six others.

Kanakagiri police, based on CCTV footage, has lodged cases against 58 people in connection with the violence that took place on Thursday. The deceased were recognised as Pashawali Mohammad Saaba (27) and Yankappa Shamappa Talawara (44), both residents of the Hulihaidar village. Of the six injured, condition of Dharmanna Nagalingappa, is said to be serious.

It is said that Saaba had married a girl belonging to the Talwar community of Hindu religion recently due to which members of Talwar community were furious and the situation was tense in the village. Saaba went to Talawar's lane to buy flowers where he was fatally attacked by Yankappa. Later, Saaba succumbed to his injuries.

The angry mob which attacked Yankappa's house carried big sticks which led to the suspicion that it was a pre-planned attack.  

ASP Arunagshu Giri had rushed to the spot and was monitoring the situation. Prohibitory orders have been clamped in the region. Local people have been demanding a sub-police station at the Hulihaider village as the "law and order situation there was not good". Police have taken up further investigation.
