Bengaluru, 18th April. 
Two individuals were injured in Bengaluru after a dispute arose between them and four others, reportedly over chanting Jai Shri Ram. Two suspects have been arrested, while two others, including a minor, have been detained on charges of causing religious offense and rioting.

According to police officials, three men named Pavan Kumar, Rahul, and Binayak were in a car on their way to check out a second-hand motorcycle for sale. They had a saffron flag and were chanting Jai Shri Ram on Wednesday, which was Ram Navami, as per an official.

Around 3:45 pm, two men on a motorcycle, identified as Farman and Sameer, stopped them in North Bengaluru’s Chikkabettahalli and questioned why they were chanting the slogan, insisting they should only say Allahu Akbar, as per the initial police report.

Farman then attempted to grab the flag from the three men, two of whom chased him into an alley. Sameer rode away. The three men later returned to their car and were confronted by Sameer and Farman, with the latter carrying a stick, according to an official from the Vidyaranyapura police station where the complaint was filed.

Two other individuals, one of whom is a minor, joined Farman and Sameer and allegedly attacked Rahul and Binayak. Rahul was struck with the stick and sustained head injuries, while Binayak was hit on the nose.

After the assault, the accused fled the scene, and the police arrived, taking the three men to the station. Pavan filed the complaint, and they were all taken to a hospital. Farman and Sameer were arrested, while the two minors were detained.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northeast) Lakshmi Prasad stated that a case has been filed under various sections of the Indian Penal Code at the Vidhyaranyapura police station. The three men were holding a flag and chanting Jai Shri Ram while in the car. When they were stopped, the two men demanded they say Allahu Akbar instead.
