1 min read

Mandya: Tension prevailed for sometime, as a JD(S) MLC raised his objection to the screening of Journalists for Covid-19 at Ambedkar Bhavan in the city on Saturday. The MLC’s son who allegedly tried to assault the journalists has been detained by the police.

It is alleged that MLC K T Srikante Gowda who came to the bhavan along with his supporters took objection. He allegedly registered his opposition as his house is located near the bhavan. He was also not happy with the measures taken to screen the Journalists on the premises.

As he was joined by his son, Gowda picked up a wordy duel with the authorities. As the situation was going out of control, the police had to use mild force to disperse the crowd.

Deputy Commissioner Dr M V Venkatesh who expressed his regrets over the incident said action will be taken against the accused on the basis of the complaint to be lodged by district Journalists Association.

SP Parashuram also assured to take stringent action against the guilty.
