Whistleblower beaten up for exposing water mafia

Whistleblower beaten up for exposing water mafia
Bangalore, Feb 18, DHNS:

The water racket at Yasin Nagar in HBR Layout 2nd Stage got murkier on Thursday afternoon with the whistleblower in this connection allegedly assaulted by those involved in the racket.

The incident took place after the visit of Sarvagnanagar MLA K J George to the spot in the morning. Two separate FIRs by both sides have been registered at Hennur police station in connection with the incident.

General Secretary of the HBR Layout Residents Welfare Association, Aneez Ahmed, has filed a case of assault against Jabeen, the key woman involved in the racket.

According to Aneez, he visited the spot along with BWSSB engineers around 12.30 p.m. “Jabeen along with her associates surrounded me and she caught me by the collar. She tried to beat me up and I ducked. My chest bears her nail marks in the scuffle,” he said.
“One of her supporters wielding a stick rendered some blows on my back,” Aneez charged.

He visited a hospital and has now filed an FIR at Hennur Police Station against the “water mafia,” attaching the medical certificate as a proof of it. “I could not hit her back since she was a woman and so I have gone to the law,” Aneez said.

Confirming details about the FIR, Inspector at Hennur station, Hanumanth Rai, added that Jabeen and her group have filed a case against Aneez and his brothers for attacking them. “We will investigate charges by both the sides,” the inspector added.
