Karnataka BJP MLA Sateesh Reddy's house targeted, two luxury cars set on fire
In a late-night incident, BJP MLA Sateesh Reddy's house was targeted and two of his luxury vehicles parked at his house were set on fire. The MLA found three unidentified persons in CCTV footage and handed the same to the police for further investigation.
Three-time MLA and minister aspirant Sateesh Reddy's house was attacked in Bengaluru late at night by miscreants at around 1:30 am.
Talking to Asianet Newsable, Reddy said that he is also shocked over the attack as he has no 'adversaries' in his assembly segment Bommanahalli.
Flames and thick smoke was noticed at midnight and the family dialed the police and fire department. Meanwhile, the family members and house staff made efforts to contain the fire.
By the time fire could be controlled, his newly brought Fortuner and SUV and Thar Jeep were completely damaged and now junking them is the only option.
"The fire was noticed around 1:25 am. The CCTV footage also showed three identified members moving in his house and setting the fire. In one of the CCTV cameras, their face was also captured. All these people are strangers and outsiders. I have given the footage to the Deputy Commissioner of Police South East for further investigation." said Reddy.
Sateesh Reddy won from Bommanahalli in 2008 and converted this segment as his fort. His name cropped up in May after a regional media report accused his associates of being involved in blocking beds in BBMP limits during Covid peak time.
Reddy and his supporters were also accused of heckling IAS officer V Yashvanth. The officer was in charge of bed booking in private hospitals. There was pressure from political leaders on the officer to give additional beds to public representatives.
As he did not budge to pressure then, he was heckled by Reddy and his supporters.
