Bengaluru: Agricultural Produce Market Committee President was shot by unknown assailants near Kogilu Junction on Friday. Bengaluru has been placed on red alert after the shootout.
Two men on bikes opened fire this morning on the car of M Srinivas, who headed the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC). The shooting took place when Mr Srinivasa’s Honda City slowed down at a traffic light.
APMCs are established by the state government to assist farmers in selling their produce, mainly through an auction, to ensure they get the best prices.
Mr Srinivasa, who had been arrested in 2013 and released on bail, is facing a series of criminal charges including murder. He and his driver were rushed to hospital.
