Ashwin Krushnapaksha 12, Kaliyug Varsha 5114Ponda (Goa) : Sanatan’s seeker, Mr. Bhagavant Naik, who was propagating Dharma on the occasion of Guru-Pournima through a vehicle, was brutally beaten up by Lakshadeep Naik just two days prior to Guru-Pournima. Police did not take any action despite lodging complaint; therefore, Mr. Bhagavant Naik filed a case with the Court. During the hearing of this case, the Court has ordered the Police to register an offence against accused Lakshadeep Naik under clause 156 (3) of Criminal Procedure Code. (Why the Court has to instruct police for filing case against accused involved in serious beating ?- Editor SP)
It has been mentioned in the order that it was, prima facie, observed in this incident that a cognizable offence had been committed. Ponda Police should, therefore, conduct inquiry and submit report within three months. On 1st July 2012, when advertisement of Guru-Pournima Function was done through a vehicle, Lakshdeep Nanao Naik stopped Bhagavant Rajaram Naik, Sanatan’s seeker from Madakai who was driving the vehicle; pulled him out of the vehicle and brutally beat him up; besides, he tore the board displayed on the vehicle in connection with Guru-Pournima function. Mr. Naik lodged a complaint with the Ponda police station; but necessary action was not taken by the police; therefore, Mr. Bhagavant Naik filed a criminal case against Lakshdeep Nano Naik under sections 323, 341, 392, 427, 504, 506(2) and 34. He also made a demand filing separate application in the Court for instructing police to take action under clause 156 (3) of Criminal Procedure Code, 1973.
While pleading for the applicant, advocate Nagesh Takbhate said that the said offence was of serious nature as also cognizable. Proofs of committing the offence have been submitted in the Court. In such incident, the Court has a right to instruct the police for registering an offence, stated advocate Takbhate giving reference of a verdict passed by the Supreme Court. The Court accepted his argument, ordering police to register an offence and conduct inquiry.

Complaint lodged with Ponda police station; police treat it as non-cognizable case
Sanatan seekar, Mr. Bhagwanta Naik
Mr. Bhagavant Naik was going towards Ponda from Bori Bridge at about 5.00 p.m. in the vehicle. As he reached Bori circle, Lakshya (age- 30 yrs apprx.) stopped the vehicle. He came near Mr. Bhagavant Naik and abused him. When Mr. Naik asked him what was the matter, he tried to pull out cell phone fitted on the loudspeaker (on which there was clipping of advertisement done till then) so Mr. Naik stopped him. Immediately, Lakshya and 5-6 youth who had reached there, pulled Mr. Naik out, circled him and started kicking him. The youth had two-wheeler, Pulsar, with the No. 7560; but Mr. Naik said that he did not see the whole number. (Are Ponda police going to take any action with the help of this information? – Editor SP)
Mr. Naik was thrown on the vehicle that had loudspeaker; then he was pushed on the ground and kicked. Mr. Naik was beaten up at three places; firstly, near Bori circle, then at some distance from the Circle and lastly, near Sree Saibaba Temple. Mr. Naik’s lips are swollen; he has received injuries on his right hand’s upper portion, on left side of his neck and right hand’s index finger. The youth also broke down a part of front door’s lock of that vehicle.
Lakshya first stopped the vehicle and threatened nearby people to keep away. The onlookers did not intervene out of fear although Mr. Naik was being beaten up for nearly 10 minutes. Mr. Naik’s clothes and the banner were also torn. Few local residents then stopped the youth and Mr. Bhagavant Naik drove ahead. As he travelled little distance, Lakshya once again stopped his vehicle with the two-wheeler, Pulsar and beat up Mr. Naik. Thereafter as Mr. Naik still drove further, he stopped Mr. Naik near Sree Saibaba Temple and beat him up on his face and kicked him. While beating Mr. Naik, Lakshya was telling people gathered there that it was personal fight and nobody should come in the way. As such, everybody just watched the scene while Mr. Naik was being beaten up. (How will God protect such people? – Editor SP)
Although brutally beaten, injuries are not felt so much; only with God’s grace – Bhagavant NaikAfter the incident, Mr. Bhagavant Naik said, “I was kicked, pushed on the ground and banged against the vehicle; still I did not feel that much pain. Only with God’s grace, I could bear with such beating.”
