The five-second video clip shows Ganesh in a vulnerable position and Anand Singh is seen holding his collar, inside the resort
Bengaluru: A video clip of Karnataka Congress MLAs Anand Singh and Ganesh fighting inside a resort has gone viral. With Singh discharged from hospital and Ganesh arrested nearly one month after the incident, the video has now surfaced on social media.
In the five-second video clip, Singh is seen holding Ganesh by his collar and asking him, "Did you see it?" To this, Ganesh replies, "this is wrong" and then Singh says, "She is...”
And Ganesh repeats, "This is wrong". Then a third voice is heard saying, "Brother, please leave him." It looks like the video was shot on a mobile phone by someone inside the resort.
Reacting to the video, Congress leader and the man who managed to keep all the MLAs in the resort, minister DK Shivakumar said that he has no idea about the incident or the video.
All Karnataka Congress MLAs were holed up in the Eagleton Resort on the outskirts of Bengaluru on January 18, with the speculations of the BJP trying to poach them to topple the coalition government in Karnataka. The MLAs met in the resort on the pretext of a legislative meet and continued to stay there till January 21.
The news of the fight between Singh and Ganesh broke on January 20, but the Congress leaders denied of any such incident and termed it as nothing serious. But soon, Singh was found admitted to a private hospital and visuals of him being severely injured on the face, especially eyes started making rounds.
Following this, the news that Ganesh had hit Singh on the head with a bottle broke and the latter's wife threatened to take legal action if her husband was injured.
This resulted in Ganesh absconding and after a series of denials, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao said that action will be taken to arrest Ganesh. However, it took one month before Ganesh was arrested from a hotel in Gujarat on February 21 and has now been remanded to judicial custody till March 6.
Interestingly, the video that is making the rounds now shows Ganesh in a vulnerable position and has been released just three days before the judicial custody of Ganesh ends.
Though there is a reference of 'her' in the video, no details about the same are available yet.
