Belagavi, Jan 11: The police have formed three teams to nab BJP MLA Raju Kage, his relatives and some residents of Ugar Khurd in Athani taluk who have been at large since Monday after cases were registered against them for assaulting Congress worker Vivek Shetty and his mother Ujwala on January 1.

assault3Taking exception to Shetty’s social media post critical of the BJP, close relatives and supporters of the Kagwad MLA had barged into Shetty’s house. Armed with sickles, rods and other weapons, they came straight to his bedroom, beat him up and dragged him to the stairs. They then abducted him to a godown where Kage and others abused him and brutally beat him up.

After the video footage of the assault was released by Shetty’s family on Monday, the government directed the Kagwad police to take necessary action. SP B R Ravikanthe Gowda said three teams have been formed to nab the suspects. Meanwhile, Kage said over phone that he was in Mumbai.
