Police told to register FIR against Renuka

Written by: Staff

Mangalore, Feb19: After a resident of Mangalore lodged a petition against Union Minister for Women and Child Development Renuka Chowdhry for her derogatory remarks on Mangalore pub incident, a local court here has asked police to register a complaint against her.

"Renuka Chowdhry has done an offence by misusing criminal incidents and tried to outrage the criminal feelings, religious feelings and even caused defamation to the entire city of Mangalore. The judgement is a historical judgement whereby the court has directed the police to register an FIR against her," said T T Hegde, Counsel of Ganesh Hosabettu, the petitioner and mayor of Mangalore city.

Choudhary shrugged off the charges saying they were meant for 'public consumption.'

"The whole country witnessed whatever happened outside the Mangalore pub. Media showed how few ordinary goons attacked the women who were present inside the pub. I questioned that who has given them this authority of hitting them and who were they objecting to. Actions are not being taken against them but me. This is so weird. I haven't got any notice and this is just for the public consumption they are doing it," said Choudhary.

The Congress has charged the BJP-run state government with complicity in the attack, saying such acts could not have happened without the government's support.
