Congress MLA who was 'target' of Bengaluru riots breaks silence

When the fires ran out on the night of August 11 after 5 hours of vandalism, looting and senseless violence in East Bengaluru, four lives had been lost and hundreds were being treated for injuries. What was initially thought of as anger over a provocative Facebook post is now being investigated in a completely new angle. 

Few days ago, the Bengaluru CCB revealed that the true motive of the attack could have been to allegedly eliminate the Congress MLA and that those from his own party were behind the plot. 

On August 11 night, Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivasamurthy's house was targetted and set ablaze by miscreants. He survived the attack. In light of the CCB revelation, Asianet Newsable spoke exclusively to Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivasamurthy.
