Muhamad Haneef (35), a resident of Gandhinagar in Sullia was travelling in a KSRTC bus heading from Mangaluru to Mysuru. At Kalllugundi a group of people boarded the bus and took Haneef to task for sitting next to a woman from a different community. After confirming that the two were not related the group got down from the bus. When the bus reached Madikeri bus-stand at about 10 p.m., another group got into the bus and hurled abuses at Haneef and took the two to the Madikeri policestation. The police sent Haneef and the woman away when they learnt that there was no relationship between them. Haneef has filed a complaint with the Sullia police against Sudha, an auto driver and a representative of Dinu hotel and others. The police have registered a case under IPC sections 341,143, 298, and 504.
