Mangaluru:  A case has been registered against a district VHP functionary for making alleged provocative public statement over the recent killing of a Muslim man here.

Police today said they have suo motu (on their own) registered a case against Dakshina Kannada VHP district president Jagadish Shenava for promoting enmity between different groups.

Speaking at a book release function last week, Mr Shenava had made the 'provocative' statement on the fatal attack on Abdul Basheer on January 3 in an apparent retaliation to the killing of a Bajrang Dal member Deepak Rao in the city on the same day.

He had then said he would not be bothered even if the police filed a case against him for the remarks.

The speech had drawn flak from various quarters and JD-S and Popular Front of India had demanded action against Shenava.
