Karnataka Lokayukta stabbed in Office: Out of danger

Man who stabbed Lokayukta Vishwanathan Shetty at his cabin in Bengaluru on Wednesday

Karnataka Lokayukta, Justice P Vishwanath Shetty, an anti-corruption watchdog, was stabbed in his Bengaluru office on Wednesday. "The accused has been taken into custody", Indian Express quoted state home minister Ramalinga Reddy as saying. Advocate Jay Anna, who witnessed the assault, said the attack was pre-planned as the attacker had came to the Lokayukta office carrying a knife. The judge fell on the floor. Veteran politician Deve Gowda has also hit out at the Karnataka govt for failing to provide proper security to the Lokayukta. It has been reported that the metal detectors at the entrance of the Lokayukta were dysfunctional, which could have possibly made it easier for Sharma to carry a knife inside the building.

Further inquiry is on, Commissioner of Police T Suneel Kumar told ANI.
