6 detained for disrupting Assembly proceedings

Bangalore:  Feb 15, 2013 DH News Service

Six people who disrupted the Legislative Assembly proceedings on Thursday by shouting slogans were detained by the security staff.

Discussions on the 2013-14 budget proposals were in progress when six people, seated in the visitors’ gallery, suddenly stood up and shouted slogans, demanding suo motu powers for the Lokayukta.

They also waved and threw a black handkerchief and pieces of paper. They have been identified as Jayakumar Hiremath, Bhaskar, Shivakumar, Ravikumar, Xavier and Santhosh.

Dragged out of gallery


According to sources, the watch and ward staff had to drag them out of the gallery. They were released after the Assembly was adjourned for the day.

Hiremath, a social activist, had flung pamphlets demanding the appointment of Lokayukta during Independence Day Celebrations at Field Marshal Manekshaw Parade Grounds in Bangalore last year.

Bhaskar, a Right to Information activist, had claimed last year that Law Minister Suresh Kumar had suppressed information about family owning property while securing a BDA site in Bangalore under the chief minister’s discretionary quota.
The minister had briefly quit following the allegation.
