Activists of fringe Hindu groups booked for celebrating Ananthamurthys death

Bangalore: Karnataka Police Saturday registered a case against activists of fringe Hindu groups who burst crackers to "celebrate" the death of writer U.R Ananthamurthy.

Police sources said a case was registered by the Mudigere police in Chikmangalur against unidentified BJP and Hindu Jagarana Vedike activists under sections of the IPC relating to rioting, causing public nuisance and forming an unlawful assembly.

The activists, many of whom covered their faces to mask their identities, "celebrated" the death of Jnanpith awardee U R Ananthamurthy by bursting crackers. They had also raised slogans against Ananthamurthy as they burst the crackers.

Ananthamurthy, who was known for his strong anti-Sangh Parivar, anti-BJP' views, had raised a storm of controversy in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections, saying he would not live in India if Narendra Modi were to become the Prime Minister.

The renowned writer, however, did a U-turn, saying he had made the remark out of emotion.
