Beehive dislodged in VS; sub-inspector, clerk stung

A sub-inspector of police and a clerk in the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR) were stung by bees when a beehive near the west gate of Vidhana Soudha went loose on Thursday morning. 

Officials and security personnel at the State’s seat of power ran helter-skelter when the beehive was dislodged and bees swarmed the portico, sources said. The bees stung whoever came their way. In the melee, sub-inspector Nagaraj and Loknath, a clerk in the DPAR, were stung by the bees. They were later given first aid. 

According to a staffer at Vidhana Soudha, there are several beehives on the Vidhana Soudha premises and no one dares to dislodge them.

But Thursday was not exactly the right day for the bees to swarm the seat of power as all ministers, including the chief minister, and bureaucrats were attending a Cabinet meeting.
