MANGALURU: Expressing shock over police firing which claimed two lives, former minister and Mangaluru legislator U T Khader said on Thursday his warning to the state government over implementation of the controversial Citizenship  (Amendment) Act was quoted out of context by political opponents.

Making a fervent appeal for peace in the coastal city, he demanded a probe into police firing, saying he saw no reason for local police officers to resort to firing when Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa had cautioned them not to use batons on protesters. “The police could have handled the situation properly. The state government should order a proper inquiry (into firing),” he told Deccan Chronicle.   

 

Mr Khader said "I wanted to say that if the state wants to implement the CAA, there are possibilities of protest in Karnataka as well, but my statement has been misquoted for political reasons.”

As soon as violent protests began in the city, there were messages making rounds on the social media about Mr Khader's statement.

During a protest on Tuesday, Mr Khader had warned the state government that Karnataka would “burn” if CAA was implemented in the state.
