Right wing group Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik [Images], whose outfit evoked national outrage by attacking girls and boys at a pub in Magalore, was on Monday banned from entering Mangalore district for one year.
The ban, ordered by the District Administrator and Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj was given following Muthalik owning up responsibility for the attack in January this year, official sources told PTI.
The Sri Ram Sene chief was earlier banned from entering the district for 15 days during 2003, the sources said.
In the act of 'moral policing' against pub culture, Sri Ram Sene activists had attacked women and others at the pub on January 24, raising the hackles of women's bodies with some organising pink chaddi campaign, sending thousands of undergarments to Muthalik.
