'Activist' detained for assaulting BBMP engineer
Police have detained a self-styled human rights activist on the charge of assaulting a BBMP assistant engineer.  According to police,  the suspect Srinivas (47) is a resident of Lakshmipura and claims to be the leader of “Karnataka Human Rights Panel.”

Srinivas barged inside the BBMP office at Hanumanthnagar ward on March 21 around 6 pm and complained that the Palike had failed to implement development works in the ward. He threatened to kick Girish, an assistant engineer and teach him a lesson. When Girish objected to it, Srinivas assaulted him. The latter also abused Devavarma, a BBMP work inspector, who  rushed to Girish’s rescue.

Police detained Srinivas on Girish’s complaint. Srinivas has been shifted to a hospital after he complained of chest pain. He will be produced before the magistrate after he recovers. Srinivas had assaulted a staffer in 2016 in the same office and the police had registered a case against him.
