Karnataka: Congress MLA JN Ganesh missing after assaulting MLA, injured MLA Anand Singh claims accused asked for a gun to kill him

The Bidadi police had on Monday booked Ganesh under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt with dangerous weapons), 307 (attempt to murder), 504 (intentional insult to breach peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The drama surrounding the Karnataka Congress-JDS coalition may not end any time soon as the events have taken a turn around after Kampli MLA J N Ganesh who is accused of assaulting Congress MLA Anand Singh is absconding following an FIR against him, reported Deccan Herald.

According to the reports, the Ramanagar police have formed special teams to arrest Congress MLA Ganesh, who has gone missing after Anand Singh had lodged an FIR against JN Ganesh, for allegedly assaulting him. The shocking incident had occurred after a heated argument between two Congress MLAs from Bellary- Anand Singh and JN Ganesh turned violent and Anand Singh was injured after JN Ganesh hit him with a bottle.

Following the incident, Anand Singh was admitted to a private hospital in Bengaluru for further treatment. Most of the senior Congress leaders including Deputy CM Parameshwar met Anand Singh in the hospital but refuted any claims of fighting between the two Congress leaders. The Congress had distanced itself from JN Ganesh and had suspended him from the party.

The police officials have said that after recording Anand Singh’s statement, they had registered an FIR and went to the resort (Eagleton) to arrest Ganesh but did not find Ganesh there. We recorded the statements of resort staffers. “We tried reaching Ganesh on his mobile phone, but it was switched off. We also tried to contact him through his close aides, but couldn’t,” said the police officials.

The Bidadi police had on Monday booked Ganesh under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt with dangerous weapons), 307 (attempt to murder), 504 (intentional insult to breach peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Meanwhile, Siddarth Singh, son of Anand Singh speaking to the media said that his father is yet to recover. He added that swelling in Anand Singh’s eye has not yet reduced and doctors will decide on surgery after swelling subsides.

The injured legislator Anand Singh in his statement has reportedly said that Kampli MLA JN Ganesh allegedly attempted to kill Hospet legislator Anand Singh and had asked for a revolver so that he could gun down him. “Ganesh hit me on my head with clubs and flower pots. He banged my head against the wall and kicked me in my stomach and face as I fell down,” said injured Hospet MLA.

On Friday, the Congress had moved 76 of its 80 lawmakers to the resort amid fears of poaching by the BJP. Four of the Congress MLAs did not make it to the Eagleton Resorts and also failed to attend the Congress legislature party meet on Friday. All the four MLAs have been sent a show-cause notice by the Congress party. Recently, two independent MLAs, H Nagesh and R Shankar had withdrawn their support from the Karnataka government.
