Bengaluru: BBMP Congress corporator’s husband and his followers allegedly assaulted two businessmen with lethal weapons in Jeevan Bima Nagar police limits on Sunday night.
The victims, Vijay Kumar and Suresh, who are brothers, accused Thippasandra ward corporator Shilpa’s husband Abhilash Reddy of assaulting them.
Vijay and Suresh own a steel shop on Thippasandra Main Road and right in front of their shop, the storm water drain work is going on for the past one week.
