Karnataka Lokayukta PV Shetty stabbed; BJP blames Congress: 10 developments


Amid reports of a security breach, Siddaramaiah said he had asked police to look into it and take action.

Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Vishwanath Shetty had written 20 times to authorities asking for more security, according to Justice Santosh Hegde who once headed the anti-corruption body in the state. He has been admitted in the ICU of Mallya hospital.

It took nearly ten minutes after the stabbing for the assailant to be nabbed and he turned out to be an RTI activist who was unhappy with the Lokayukta's response to a petition he had filed.

Police are now reviewing CCTV footage of the office.

It was not clear if Justice Shetty dealt with Sharma's case as there are several Lokayuktas.

Back to the square, Justice Shetty has been brutally stabbed thrice in the light of the day. He has injuries in his chest and stomach.

The doctors also confirmed the newspaper about his health and said he is stable.

Doctors at Mallya Hospital said that he is being treated at the Intensive Care Unit. According to reports, Justice Shetty was conscious when he was taken to the hospital. The initial response of the ruling party Congress spokesman (as quoted in sections of the media) is to maintain that the stabbing of the state's highest anti-corruption Constitutional functionary is not a security lapse! The attacker, identified as Tejaraj Sharma, was arrested while Shetty was said to be out of danger.
