Bengaluru, DHNS: 5 men attacked Kumar as he referred to BSY-Shobha 'wedding'. A press conference by founder president of Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) Padmanabha Prasanna Kumar turned ugly on Friday with some miscreants pouring engine oil on him at the Press Club of Bangalore.

At the press conference, Kumar was claiming that he has proof to show that state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa had married Lok Sabha member Shobha Karandlaje.

As soon as he took Shobha’s name, five youth in the guise of journalists rushed to the podium and poured two cans of engine oil on him. A shocked Kumar could not react for almost 10 minutes.

The youths raised slogans ‘Bharath Rakshana Vedike Zindabad’ and said they will not tolerate anyone speaking ill about any respectable woman. The youths quickly bolted away from the scene before they could be caught.

Soaked in oil, Kumar claimed that there was threat to his life. “This is the second time I have been attacked. Earlier, I was attacked in Shivamogga while addressing the media. I have the video CD of Yeddyurappa’s marriage with Shobha. I will release it, if I am given proper protection,” claimed Kumar.

The incident sent the Press Club management into a tizzy. Journalists started questioning what if someone is set afire during a press conference at the Press Club.
When contacted, S P Shivaprakash, general secretary of the Club, said the management has taken a serious view of the incident.

“We have reported the matter to the Vidhana Soudha police. We have came to know that one of the attackers is a certain Santosh Shetty. We will tighten the security at Club henceforth,” said Shivaprakash.
