MANGALURU: A day after Popular Front of India (PFI) activists clashed with police, a sub inspector on night patrolling was attacked by two youths in the early hours of Wednesday. The injured sub inspector is Aithappa of Urwa police station.
Sources say Aithappa was riding his motorcycle near Ladyhill, two masked motorcycle-borne youths chased him and hit him on the head with an iron rod.

He sustained serious head injuries and was shifted to a private hospital in the city.  He is said to be out of danger, sources said.
As the incident occurred after the lathicharge by the police against activists of PFI and Democratic Youth Federation of India, police suspect the role of youth who belong to these two organisations behind the incident. However, they did not have any clue to prove their doubt. Three special teams have been formed to nab the culprits.

Though rumours are doing rounds that a youth who threatened a teenage Muslim singer for singing Hindu devotional songs must have been involved in this crime, police have not confirmed it.  ACP Uday Naik, who is leading a team formed to nab the culprits involved in the attack  said that they are clueless about the miscreants.
“We don’t know who is involved in this attack. As the incident occurred after the protest and lathicharge, we suspect that it may be the continuation of yesterday’s incident,” he added.
