The Goa government has extended the ban imposed on the entry of Pramod Muthalik, the chief of controversial right-wing outfit Sri Ram Sena, and his associates till March 16 this year to the coastal state.
As per the orders issued on Friday by District Magistrate of North Goa district, the ban on his entry is extended by another sixty days as the earlier ban expired on January 14, 2016. Muthalik and his associates are debarred from entering Goa during this period.
“The ban order was reviewed. Since the report from the police department once again expressed the fear that Muthalik’s and/or his members entry might create law and order situation in the state, and hence the ban was extended,” the order stated.
The Goa government has banned the entry of Muthalik and his associates since 2014 fearing law and orders problems. The Goa bench of Bombay High Court had also upheld the ban imposed by the state government.
Muthalik was linked with the attack on women at a pub in Mangalore in 2009.
