'Complainant' stabs Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Shetty, arrested

  • Karnataka Lokayukta judge Vishwanath Shetty

The attacker was arrested while Shetty was said to be out of danger. "It's #GoondaSidduSarakara. Home minister are you there", he said in another tweet tagging state home minister Ramalinga Reddy.

Meanwhile, the BJP Karnataka posted on its official Twitter handle, "Attack on Lokayukta is highly condemnable".

While the Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah has ordered a probe, a shocked retired UP IG of police Vikram Singh told Times Now that the local Deputy Commissioner of Police should immediately be suspended for failing to provide basic security at the Lokayukta headquarters.

The judge suffered four stab wounds on his torso and shoulder region and one on his left hand, which indicated he had tried to defend himself by raising his hand.




It is learnt that the metal detector at the office was defunct allowing the attacker to gain entry to the Lokayukta's chamber with a knife. The office of the Lokayukta was embroiled in a major scandal three years ago after an investigation by a police SIT revealed widespread corruption perpetrated by the former Lokayukta's son Ashwin Rao. The accused reportedly went inside the office by claiming he wanted to speak to the Lokayukta.

Shetty had taken charge as the Lokayukta in January 2017. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, quite taken aback rushed into the hospital to pay a visit to Shetty in person.

The supposed culprit has been named as, Tejas Sharma, and according to some reports he was facing inquiry in multiple cases. It has been found that the accused had complained against 15-17 public servants in connection with supply of furniture. "It was premeditated and, hence, we have registered a case of attempted murder", Kumar said.

"The gunman was standing guard outside Shetty's chamber and the CCTV is also installed, Siddaramaiah said, adding, ". Opposition leaders from the BJP and JDS have already shamed the congress government for bringing down law and order of the place. Siddaramaiah told the media that there is a gunman provided to the Lokayukta as per law but the gunman was outside and the government will now look at the security lapses.
