Karnataka Lokayukta P Vishwanatha Shetty was stabbed multiple times in his office on Wednesday. A very important detail because of which the attack might have taken place is that the metal detectors in the office premises are defunct, which easily allowed the criminal to enter with a metal object with him and attack Shetty.

A few Lokayukta staff rushed inside and overpowered Sharma.They shifted Vishwanath Shetty to Mallya Hospital.

The assailant has been identified as Tejas Sharma, said to be an advocate, based on his entry in the register at the Lokayukta's office, reported The Hindu.

Justice Vishwanath Shetty had sworn in as Karnataka's Lokayukta on 28 January a year ago after the post went vacant following a bribery scandal.

A former Karnataka high court judge, Shetty took over as the anti-corruption ombudsman in January 2017 amid allegations by activists who accused him of corruption. He hails from Tumkur and was called in for an inquiry.

The assailant came to the office saying he wanted to meet Shetty and after entering the chamber, stabbed the Lokayukta with a knife, Siddaramaiah said.

The Karnataka Home Minister said, "He (the attacker) complained to the Lokayukta about some tenders".

Sharma, a furniture supplier from Tumakuru, about 70 km northwest from here, had filed a complaint about a local government office, the police said. "How can we say there has been a security breach", Kalappa added.

CM Siddaramaiah and other ministers visited the hospital under heavy security. Following the incident, former Prime Minister H Deve Gowda has slammed the state government for poor law and order. Veteran politician Deve Gowda has also hit out at the Karnataka govt for failing to provide proper security to the Lokayukta.
