There are no configuration options for it, so you would have to change source code.

@ajai2417 - sounds like you don't want issue details updated after issue is reported. Something you can try... You can uncheck 'Update Issue' permissions in the workflow thresholds for all others access levels except reporter but still allow developers etc to assign an issue, change status and add notes. However, There is a bug that prevents change of status & re-assignment when update/edit is turned off https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/view.php?id=22093. But there seems to be a workaround for it mentioned in the issue.
