One assaulted for damaging road

Two persons brutually assaulted V Ashwatha Reddy allegedly for damaging the concrete road driving his tractor at Hosahudya village on Saturday.

Reddy was attacked by Venkatesh and Somashekhar of the same village. Venkatesh is the son of Krishnappa, a gram panchayat member.

It is said that the concrete road was recently laid by Krishnappa in the village. But the road was slightly damaged when Reddy drove on the road with his tractor.

This apparently irked Venkatesh and Somashekhar who assaulted Reddy with iron rods and stones and the latter has been admitted at the hospital with severe head injuries.
Somashekhar and Venkatesh have been arrested in this regard said Pathapalya police station sub-inspector Sadik Bhasha.

The incident could have turned ugly had the police not reached the spot on time. But the police had to bear the people’s wrath, who pelted stones on them.
Later, the situation was brought under control.
