The Cubbon Park police in Bengaluru has booked 11 persons, including a member of the Bahutva Karnataka (a citizen’s group), and other unnamed people for holding a solidarity gathering in support of Palestine on M G Road without permission from the competent authorities Monday evening.
The accused have been booked under IPC Section 188 (Disobedience to an order lawfully promulgated by a public servant), 283 (Danger or obstruction in public way or line of navigation), 290 (committing public nuisance), 291 (repeating a public nuisance despite injunction) and 149 (unlawful assembly).
The accused include Vinay Sreenivas, Babu Prakash, Fahad Khan, Imran Babu, Mohammad Ashwas, Syed Abbas, Leo John, Mohammed Saifuddin, Mohammed Ismail, Shoheb, Umar and others.
The city police who have taken suo moto cognisance have stated in the FIR that the Bahutva Karnataka had convened a large gathering through a WhatsApp group under the movement ‘Join us in Solidary With Palestine and Say No to Genocide and Occupation’ near the Rangoli Metro Art Station on M G Road. According to the FIR, nearly 100-150 people gathered with placards, shouted slogans and protested without obtaining any permission from the competent authorities.
Bengaluru police commissioner B Dayananda, addressing the media, said, “The gathering was a flash mob that was mobilised mainly through WhatsApp. People who gathered were booked because protests and demonstrations are not allowed in the city, except in Freedom Park, as per High Court directions. They also did not seek any permission for the gathering and caused inconvenience to public and traffic movement. A total of 25 people were taken in preventive custody.”
