Protest against assault on parents of sand artist

Members of Veerashaiva-Lingayat Mahasabha and Basava Balaga staged a protest on Saturday, condemning the assault on the parents of M N Gowri, a sand artist, who manages the Sand Museum in the city.

A group of people, said to be the employees of the Kauvery Silk Udyog, reportedly assaulted  Nagalambike, 55, and B M Nanjundaswamy, 60, at the museum on Thursday. Following the incident, a complaint was registered with the Nazarbad police station.

The agitators blocked the road leading to Chamundi Hill, expressing their anguish at the police inaction. Though the CCTV camera footage clearly shows the incident and the attackers, the police have not arrested the culprits, they blamed.
