An incident of Bajrang Dal people, objecting to a young Hindu woman and Muslim man travelling together in a bus and creating a scene, has been reported from the communally sensitive district of Dakshina Kannada in Karnataka.

According to police, the woman was travelling with her friend in a private bus from Mangaluru to Bengaluru.

The Bajrang men, who got to know about this, tried to stop the bus near the Pump well area in Mangaluru. However, when they could not stop the bus, they informed their members in Kalladka town.

The Bajrang Dal men stopped the bus at Dasakodi near Kalladka and questioned the woman and the man over their travelling together. The self styled ‘moral police’ scolded the woman, and asked both to get down from the bus. They later informed the Bantwal police, which immediately rushed to the spot and took the two to safe custody.

A video of the woman arguing with the Bajrang Dal men went viral on social media. The Bajrang Dal men told the police that the two were travelling together on a sleeper bus and they suspected it to be a trap.

The parents of the woman were called and she was sent home with them, police said. The police have taken up the matter for further investigation.
