Mudigere’s BJP MLA MP Kumaraswamy was attacked by the locals of Hullemane village in Karnataka’s Chikkamagaluru district as he visited the village after an elephant killed a woman. The villagers alleged that the MLA didn’t respond properly to the earlier attacks done by elephants.

The locals were agitated with a 45-year-old woman, Shobha, who succumbed to the injuries after an elephant attacked her on Sunday. It was reported that Kumaraswamy rushed to the village to pacify the angry locals and in return got thrashed and his shift was torn by them. However, after some villagers rushed to save him from the angry mob, they stopped beating the BJP MLA.

The deceased woman was at a paddy field near her house when she was attacked by a wild elephant. She has a 20-year-old son. The locals demanded setting up a special task force to bring the elephant menace under control.

The villagers said that the elephant menace has been on the rise and farmers are in a panic state after the recent attack to work in the estates, said The New Indian Express report.
