Chikkamagaluru: Ten held for assaulting BJP MLA M P Kumaraswamy


Update 

Chikkamagaluru, Nov 21 (IANS): Ten villagers were arrested on Monday on charges of assaulting BJP MLA from Mudigere Assembly constituency M.P. Kumaraswamy after a woman died in elephant attack in the district. 

The arrests were made from Hullemane Kunduru village in Mudugere taluk, where the incident had taken place on Sunday. 

According to sources, the villagers were protesting with the body of a woman who died in elephant attack. BJP MLA Kumaraswamy had visited the spot late in the evening.

 

The villagers vented out their ire on BJP MLA, for not doing anything regarding elephant menace and arriving late, though they were protesting since morning. They started questioning him in singulars, then hurled abuses, tore his clothes and started beating him up. 

Later, they chased him. Amid stone pelting, the MLA was rescued and escorted to his vehicle by police. The villagers had also damaged vehicles. 

In order to quell the mob surrounding MLA Kumaraswamy, the police had to resort to lathi charge. 

The final rites of Shobha, the local woman, are yet to be conducted and the police action might trigger a more volatile situation in the village. 

Further investigation into the matter is on.

    Eva, Kirem: If that elephant was aware about the voter id scam then it should have attacked Siddaramaiah and team. because this scam started from 2017 and current govt arresting the people behind it. Even PSI scam was during Siddaramaiah govt and blame is put on current govt. What a ideology by Congress followers. Whichever scams are coming out to news now are pictured as current govt scams... this is what congress can do and did in the past to people.

    This shows the anguish of public against the high handed politicians... As of now there is negligible accountability or moral standards prevailing among political class... Even after getting caught in sleezy activities our MLAs still enjoy great level of impunity... It is good to see public demanding their rights... All these posts must become hot seats for the guys to perform or be thrown out... At the moment public servants are our bosses which should be reversed...

    @ Mr. Dayanand - Katpadi, Please red the news item quote “ The villagers got enraged by the lacklustre attitude of Kumaraswamy and gheraoed him. Then they chased him on the main road, abused and pulled his shirt, tearing it. “ unquote Public anger at the elected leaders is at its peak , they are fed up, the clean white shirt / white kurta pyjama or dhoti which they proudly wear covers their dirty deeds - public will keep quiet and watch and then vent their anger - human tendency, similar to the angry elephant which went berserk.
