New Delhi, Sept 27: The Central government has agreed to set up a National Investigation Agency (NIA) office at Bengaluru to investigate the anti-national activity of some organisations, said Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya on Sunday.

Surya further informed the media that he met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and urged him to set up a full-fledged NIA office at Bengaluru and the Union Minister agreed.

"Many terror modules and sleeper cells were busted in Bengaluru. I urged Home Minister to set up a permanent division of NIA so that anti-India activists that want to use Bengaluru as an incubator of terror activities can be curtailed. He assured it will be set up soon," he said while speaking to the media.

Tejasvi Surya also commented on the August 11 east Bengaluru violence and said, "On August 11, there was an incident of violence in Bengaluru where police stations were attacked. NIA investigation into it resulted in the arrest of a few key conspirators. It has come to light that the protest was not spontaneous but a conspiracy."

NIA on Thursday arrested a key conspirator, Sayed Saddiq Ali, for his involvement in the attack on KG Halli Police Station in Bengaluru that took place in the late evening of August 11, 2020.

The attack resulted in damage to public and government property, including damage to the police station building and vehicles parked in the police station premises and nearby areas.

Bengaluru, Sept 29: Slamming BJP MP Tejasvi Surya over his recent comments that Bengaluru has become the "epicentre of terror activities", former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday said the remark is a disgrace to the city, which "does not belong to militants".

The Janata Dal (Secular) leader further said that the statement was even an "insult to senior BJP leaders" and demanded an apology from the "concerned BJP leader".

"Some people having links with terrorist organisations were caught after the D J Halli incident. Our criticism must be against them... not the home of millions of people... Bengaluru does not belong to militants, it is ours... Bengaluru is our pride," Kumaraswamy's tweet in Kannada read.

He was referring to an incident of mob violence on August 11 when over 3,000 people went on a rampage, torching the residences of Congress MLA R Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy and his sister Jayanthi, besides D J Halli and K J Halli police stations in Bengaluru.

Without naming the BJP leader, he added, "The insult made by some commentators within the BJP that Bengaluru is a centre of terror activities is a disgrace to the city. I saw in media how CM B S Yeddyurappa struggled to justify such a statement, during a press conference on Monday. This slanderous statement is an insult to the senior BJP leaders as well."

A day after becoming the president of the of BJP's youth wing on September 26, Surya had said that Bengaluru has become an epicentre of terror activities and that he has urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah to set up a permanent division of the National Investigation Agency.

The statement drew sharp criticism from the Opposition. Earlier, Congress' D K Shivakumar had asked the BJP to sack him from his new post.
