BENGALURU: On Saturday, after the owners of the Plaza Bakery had allegedly uploaded posts expressing their support for the Pakistan Army on social media, a group of 10-members vandalized the Plaza Bakery in Madiwala.
The Madiwala police have filed a suo motu case against Muneer and his younger brother Abdul Saleem who had allegedly uploaded a picture of a man in Pakistan Army uniform with a caption that read, “I stand with Pakistan Army” and a case of rioting has been registered against the 10 unidentified members who ransacked the shop on 4th Main Link Road, Madiwala Extension.
An officer said, “Nataraj DN, a sub-inspector attached with Madiwala police station, has filed a complaint against the brothers for allegedly provoking the public. Police have registered a case under IPC sections 124a (sedition), criminal intimidation (507) and 153a (promote enmity on grounds of religion) against them.”
On Saturday in Kollam, the same post caused a mob attack on the brothers’ at their residence. “Kollam police had picked them up for questioning. We’ll send a team to Kollam to grill the duo,” they added.
The case of rioting was filed by Arasappa VN, who is the owner of the building where the bakery is located. Arasappa informed the police that he heard a huge commotion and found a group of 10 who were armed with iron rods and hammers ransacking the bakery. “Arasappa tried to stop them saying the building was his and he had given it for rent,” police said.
