Bengaluru, Oct 14: The Central Crime Branch of police probing the attack on the house of MLA R Akhanda Srinivas Murthy during the violence that rocked Bengaluru in August following his kin’s provocative Facebook post has come to a conclusion that rivalry within Congress party had resulted in brazen attack.

The CCB police on Tuesday filed an interim chargesheet naming 60 accused, including ex-mayor Sampath Raj, his assistant Arun, car driver Santosh, and former Pulakeshinagar ward corporator Abdul Rakeeb Zakir.

Attributing the attack to internal party rivalry, police said Sampath Raj and Zakir, who had issues with Murthy, took advantage of the situation on the night of August 11, when KG Halli and DJ Halli areas erupted in violence.

The 400-page charge sheet said the violence started after the MLA’s nephew Naveen posted derogatory statements against the Muslim community. A couple of youths gathered in front of Naveen’s house in Kavalbyrasandra and shouted slogans.

Sampath Raj and Zakir hatched a plan to provoke the crowd to go to the MLA’s house. The crowd later set fire to the house. “On the instruction of Sampath Raj, his personnel assistant, car driver and Zakir’s associate Majnu conspired and provoked the mob,” police said.
