Mangaluru, Mar 17: City based rationalist Prof Narendra Nayak has complained at Urwa police that some miscreants tried to attack him on the morning of Wednesday March 15.
Prof Narendra Nayak currently holds the position of president of Federation of Indian Rationalists Associations.
As per the details in the complaint, Prof Nayak had left his home at Ladyhill at 6.25 am to go to the swimming pool at Mangala Stadium. At the time, two unknown people tried to stop his car. When he did not stop, they told him that his car had a puncture. But Nayak did not stop the car and instead went to a petrol station nearby and checked the tyre. He found that the tyre was perfect without any puncture.
Prof Nayak says in the complaint that the miscreants followed him and it seemed to him by their behaviour and actions that they were about to assault or kill him.
In the recent past Prof Nayak has been trying to get justice for the family of murdered RTI activist Vinayaka Baliga. For the past six months, Nayak has been provided with a gunman during daytime. But on Wednesday, Nayak left home before the gunman arrived.
Urwa police have registered a case and CCB police have been asked to investigate.
Speaking about the complaint and security of the complainant, city police commissioner Chandra Shekar said that another gunman will be deployed at night time to provide security to Prof Nayak.
