Justice for Sowjanya activist fatally knocked down by car of Dharmasthala employee

Belthangady: Tension prevailed at a place called Pijakkala Nekkilu near Belthangady on November 20, Wednesday when hundreds of angry people began to protest against a Bolero driver whose 
vehicle fatally knocked down a young bike rider named Dinesh Gowda who had identified himself with the Justice for Sowjanya agitation.

There was tension in the air for hours together as the agitating villagers argued that ‘this was not a mere accident, but a pre-planned murder.’ The agitators even did not allow the police to shift the body to the ambulance and had pelted stones at the ambulance as well as the Bolero vehicle damaging them. Additional police forces which rushed to the spot had to resort to a lathi charge to quell the mob.

It is learnt the Bolero vehicle was driven by Balakrishna Poojari, a supervisor of the agriculture division of the Dharmasthala Rural Development Project and also a temple staff. As per the complaint lodged by the family of the deceased youth, the police have registered a case of murder through deliberate accident against Balakrishna Poojari. Latest reports say he has been arrested.In fact, this very same Balakrishna Poojari was earlier facing the accusation of trying to hush up the Sowjanya rape and murder case by forcibly trying to admit Sowjanya’s parents to hospital soon after the incident took place.

Moreover, with the deceased youth active in the pro-Sowjanya agitation, this accident has given room for suspicion resulting in protest by thousands of people. Even Balakrishna Poojari fleeing the place of the mishap soon after the mishap, further agitated locals.
Belthangady MLA Vasanth Bangera and Prajaprabhutva Vedike President Mahesh Shetty Timarody who arrived tried to pacify the agitation. However, BJP leader Prabhaker Gowda who arrived at the spot had to face the wrath of the agitators.Police have registered a case of murder as per the complaint lodged by a relative of the deceased, Siddappa Gowda that this was a systematic murder.

In the meantime, BJP leader Prabhaker Gowda who was assaulted has lodged acomplaint with Belthangady police alleging that he was assaulted by Mahesh Shetty supporters.Even Prakash, the driver of the ambulance of SDM Hospital has lodged a complaintthat miscreants deliberately stoned the ambulance.

Thank you Karavali Ale for putting up a true story.

Karavali Ale has to say this about yesterdays baseless allegations of maligning Dharmasthala Temple and Sri Virendra Hegde's name on me and few others. All other news papers were paid to do so we believe, but we are glad that Karavali Ale is very genuine and transparent here. Those who still accuse us for defaming Temple's name need to open their eyes wide and give a look at our page to find any Anti-Hegde, Anti-Dharmasthala contents.

I challenge Mr. Rajendradas (Complainer) to prove his accusation on me is true, if he proves so I am ready to DELETE THIS PAGE.

Thanks a lot for provoking us and questioning our sincerity in seeking Justice for Sowjanya. Definitely your every false attempt to stop our campaign will never turn into fruitful, rather it would strengthen our fight. You people will see that.

Here are the screenshots to prove we are not involved in insulting Dharmasthala temple and Hegde Ji name.

Since the accusations has come up saying our page 'JUSTICE FOR SOWJANYA' is maligning Dharmasthala temple's name and Sri Veerendra Hegde's name, here I am requesting Mr. Rajendradas to provide authentic proofs before lodging any complaints on me. If you show me a single post in which i had insulted any religious personalities or the temple you can take me legally.

Here are the evidences to prove I have done nothing apart seeking justice for the rape victim Sowjanya.

(In images - here are the screen shots where i said our page members not to malign Sri Kshetra Dharnasthal and Hegde ji's name.)

A Massive Protest in Mangalore Nehru Maidan (Images)

"It is really shameful that the state government handed over Sowjanya's case to the CBI only after Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari Dr Veerendra Heggade wrote to the chief minister. After destroying all the evidences in the case, now the government has handed over the case to CBI. From past 13 months even though there were doubts in the minds of the people regarding the rape and murder of Sowjanya, Dr Heggade couldn’t demand for CBI probe, but after the destruction of evidences in the case he asked the government to assign the case to the CBI," said Mahesh Shetty Thimarodi, president of Praja Prabhutva Vedike.

He was addressing a mass protest campaign demanding justice for Sowjanya, who was the found raped and murdered near Dharmasthala in October 2012. The protest was organized by Dakshina Kannada and Udupi Praja Prabhutva Vedike at Nehru Maidan here on Saturday November 9.
"Representatives are elected by the common people. They should have responded to the pain of the people but in this case our representatives were in favour of Dr Heggade. Hence the curse of Annappa and Manjunatha Swamy will surely be on those who supported injustice. The mission of Praja Prabhutva Vedike is to provide justice to the oppressed, which we are doing in the case of Sowjanya," he said.
Slamming the inefficiency of police department in handling the case, Thimarodi said, "When people are oppressed, the system remains mute, there is no justice, and all representatives are in the hands of the powerful lot, hence common people are compelled into becoming Naxals. In Dharmasthala there are several problems, and moreover in the name of Dharma, the place has witnessed several unnatural deaths. If the area where Sowjanya was found is searched thoroughly, many more human remains may be found. When there are several rapes and murders who will question them? They are trying to finish me too."
"Our struggle does not have any vested interest but we only aim to provide justice to Sowjanya and bring all unnatural deaths and land mafia under probe with the supervision of Supreme Court. I pledge to bring all their acts of injustice in front of the public," he declared.
"If Dr Heggade keeps away people like Prathap Simha and Keshava Belal, then people will respect his decision. If he had demanded CBI probe right from the beginning, people would have supported and revered him more," he added.
Kemaru Sri Esha Vittaldas Swamiji in address said, “To achieve something we need to sacrifice something. We are in a state of corruption because of corrupted officers. This gathering is not a showcase public support but it is a fight against injustice. I will always be ready to sacrifice my life for the struggle for justice. Dharma should be in practice, not in words."

Vishnumurthy Bhat social activist in his address said, “Our revolution is not to defame Dharmasthala, but it is a fight against injustice. We are not defaming Shree Dharmasthala Kshetra but they themselves have done it in the name of religion by doing injustice to people."
He lauded daijiworld for its coverage of the case and said, "When we organized our press meet recently, some media failed to cover the news, but daijiworld by carrying it brought the case to the attention of readers throughout the world."
He also alleged that the police department probed the case in a shoddy manner and tried to destroy evidences. "But no one can curtail our revolution. It will go on till we get justice," he added.

Social activist Amrutha Shetty Athradi in her address said “In Tulunadu a woman is respected and revered because she is divine, one who can give birth to a living being. This time we need to look back into the history of revolutions and see how people are suppressed. We have already belled the cat. Mistakes are common, but if they are repeated twice, thrice then they become blunders, and one who supports the blunders becomes a sinner. Hence, people need to start agitating against injustice. Tears of Tulunadu women will curse these evils. Death of Sowjanya is not an end but it is the beginning of struggle."

On this occasion Padmalatha’s father Devananda, Sowjanya’s mother Kusumavathi, Dr Harale expressed their grief and sufferings.
Chandappa Gowda was present. Ravi Poojary welcomed the gathering.

A massive protest today at Nehru Maidan, Mangalore

Namaste, under the leadership of Sri Esha Vittaldas Swamiji and Mahesh Shetty Thimarodi, Prajaprabutva Vedike will be staging a massive protest at Mangalore Nehru Maidan on November 9, 2013.

Even though Sowjanya Rape and Murder case was handed over to CBI yesterday, we don't think fair investigation will be made as this case has already seen a year under CID probe. The culprits might have destroyed the evidence by now. 

So, we request here on behalf of Kemaru Sri, Mahesh Shetty Thimarodi, please do gather at the right time in large numbers.
