Alleged assault on-duty cop: Congress leaders back Sowmya Reddy, slam govt


Team Udayavani, Jan 24, 2021, 1:34 PM IST

Bengaluru: Congress leaders and workers came out in support of party MLA Sowmya Ramalinga Reddy a day after an FIR was filed against them.

The FIR was registered against Sowmya for allegedly assaulting a woman police constable who was on duty during the Congress protest in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

After the FIR was registered KPCC president DK Shivakumar and Leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah have slammed the State government and the Home Department for filing a case against Sowmya.

“Sowmya was just trying to defend herself when the police were trying to pull her. We have seen how police treated all our women leaders. We were cooperating, in spite of that, police assaulted our legislators and workers. This was pre-planned,” alleged Shivakumar.

Recalling the case filed against Congress candidate Kusuma under poll violation, Shivakumar questioned, “Why cases were always filed against women. Why no case was registered against me or Siddaramaiah.”

Meanwhile, Siddaramaiah asked, “Sowmya too filed a complaint, what happened to it? Why is action not taken based on her complaint?’’
