Lokayukta Justice Vishwanath Shetty stabbed, Congress leader blames Justice Shetty for attack on himself

In a shocking lapse of security, Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Vishwanath Shetty was stabbed in his office, following which he has been admitted to the hospital with injuries. The accused has now been taken into custody.


One of the eyewitnesses has claimed that the accused stabbed the Lokayukta thrice with a knife, following which the latter fell on the floor.


What is even more shocking is that a Congress leader has pinned the blame on Karnataka Lokayukta himself for getting stabbed.


BJP MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar hit out on Congress for the lapse of security.


According to Home Minister of Karnataka Ramalinga Reddy, the accused is a contractor from Tumakuru and he complained to the Lokayukta regarding some tenders and he assaulted the judge when he was alone.

Justice Shetty, who is admitted in ICU right now, is reportedly out of danger now.
