BJP leader and Union Minister of State for Skill Development Anantkumar Hegde on Tuesday night claimed that a deliberate attempt on his life seems to have been executed around 11 pm.

“A truck on NH, near Halageri in Ranebennur taluk of Haveri district has hit my escort vehicle which tried to hit my vehicle in the first instance. Since our vehicle was in top speed we escaped the hit,” the minister tweeted.

“The vehicle had been driven in the wrong direction and was parked right in the road horizontally. As soon as our convoy approached he has driven at great speed and had tried hitting our car. As our car was running in good speed we passed away before he could ram us. However our support staff in the escort vehicle has suffered severe injuries in the form of shoulder fracture,” the tweet from the minister’s official handle @AnantkumarH stated.

“But unfortunately, our escort vehicle running behind us got hit and one of our staff has been injured seriously with a shoulder fracture. The driver named Naser has been caught hold by the localities and seems to be normal without any alcoholic hangover.” Hegde, who is the BJP MP from Uttara Kannada stated.
