Mutt row: two hurt in Sagar incident
Two persons were injured when a group of people, said to be followers of Ramachandrapur Mutt, prevented members of Akhila Havyaka Okkoota from conducting a meeting at Brasam Hall in Sagar on Sunday.
The injured have been identified as Uday Puttur and T.T. Hegde, members of the okkoota. The functionaries of okkoota had convened a meeting to demand Raghaveshwara Bharati, seer of the mutt, step down.
A few persons said to be devotees of the mutt, prevented the members of the okkoota from entering the venue of the meeting. In the melee, the duo sustained injuries.
The police arrived at the spot and brought the situation under control.
The protest forced the organisers to change the venue of the meeting and it was later held at the residence of Ashwin Kumar, a functionary of the okkoota.
