Karnataka Congress leader threatens to set govt office on fire in Bengaluru

Local channels posted a video in which Naranswamy was seen sprinkling petrol from a bottle in the premises of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) office at Horamavu area of the city.

The incident comes close on the heels of Congress Legislator N A Haris's son Mohammed H Nalpad involving in a assault case in a Bar on Saturday. Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dr G Parameshwara announced that Narayanaswamy had been expelled from party membership for six years. The man even sprays petrol inside the office threatening to destroy all files. He is also seen throwing petrol at Assistant Revenue Officer Chengal Rayappa, demanding that one of his associates bring him the papers that needed to be signed.

The official had reportedly refused to provide a fake land document as per his demands. He had refused multiple times and, on February 16, he took his threats to the next level.

In fact, it's an idea that's taken off in recent years, with companies promoting "DNA diets" that will help you shed pounds. They plan to look at whether a person's microbiome or gene expression finally solves the mystery.

The officer was transferred the day after the incident and was threatened against filing a police complaint, a BBMP official told The News Minute. While Rayappa said he couldn't do so as the matter was in court, Narayanaswamy allegedly insisted that he make the khata illegally. "But I did not actually want set fire to the office".

Later, speaking to media, Narayanaswamy has said that he was forced to visit BBMP office after receiving complaints from the public.

Sources said Narayanswamy is a close aide of K R Puram MLA Byrathi Basavaraju and is also close to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
