Belagavi: Residents of Veerabhadranagar in Belagavi were suspicious of seeing five Muslim youths roaming suspiciously on the streets in their area. They were more surprised after coming to know their names; they were all Hindus, but they were in traditional Muslim attire. The residents immediately alerted the police, and the police took them into custody.
During the inquiry, what the police found was that they were all beggars and were from Humnabad taluk in Bidar district. They were nomads. Market Police Station Inspector MS Tulasigeri said that they did a background check on those people. The police found that two of them were minors, and the police found that they belonged to the Budubudike community (they live on alms and tell the fortunes of the people).
The inspector said that what the residents of Veerabhadranagar saw was actually their regular clothing, and they were roaming the streets begging for alms. They don’t have any criminal background, he said. He stated that the incident would be reported to higher-ranking officers and that further action would be taken based on their recommendations, he said.
