Karnataka tensions rise as one more attacked over Savarkar row | India News

SHIVAMOGGA / MANGALURU: Tensions flare up again in the twin town of Shivamogga and Bhadravathi in Karnataka after an activist was attacked on Tuesday in what police suspect was in retaliation for Monday’s stabbing following a clash over the display of a portrait of Hindu leader Mahasabha Vinayak Damodar Savarkar.
Sunil Kumar, 28, was attacked at around 9am in Nehru Nagar as he was traveling to the Old Town area in the industrial town of Bhadravathi. Police said he was taken to the hospital and is out of danger.

This comes after a young man named Prem Singh from Rajasthan was stabbed just minutes from the site where the two groups had clashed a few minutes earlier on Monday minutes before displaying a portrait of the ruler of Savarkar and Mysore. Tipu Sultan is in the city of Shivamogga, 300 km northwest of Bengaluru. A man named Mubarak Shivamogga SP BM Laxmi Prasad was arrested within hours of Tuesday’s attack after Kumar complained about him.
Kumar told police that Mubarak attacked him a day after the two had an argument in the Old Town area. “There’s no personal enmity between us, but we got into an argument Monday night after I asked him about his rash driving behavior,” he said. He also alleges that Mubarak hit him with an iron rod to the head. “When I raised the alarm, people ran to help me and he escaped,” he said.
