Panaji: Goa Crime Branch has sought
non-bailable arrest warrants from a local court against two
persons who were allegedly involved in Balli violence and have
been missing since.

Police are looking for Narendra Faldesai, who had
allegedly attacked MLA Ramesh Tawadkar and Prashant Faldesai,
who was the part of the mob that burnt alive the tribal
leaders Manguesh Gaonkar and Dilip Velip during an agitation
on May 25.

Police spokesman, John Aguiar, said both the accused were
still missing, despite look-out circular issued against them.

"We have moved the Magistrate`s Court at Quepem, pleading
for non-bailable warrants against the both," he said.

Crime Branch last week arrested Dipak Faldesai in the
case. He has been remanded to 15 days` police custody.

The tribals` agitation, led by United Tribal Associations
Alliance (UTAA), turned into a tragedy as a mob burnt two
leaders alive at Balli village.

The tribals were demanding implementation of reservation
in government jobs.
