“While I was sitting there, I was told that the crew of some other channel was going to create mischief,” Mutalik was quoted as saying though he declined to name the channel.

He further said that a case would be lodged against the channel by the Ram Sena, report said.

Accusing Congress of having a role in the incident, he was quoted as saying: “Janardhan Poojari, RV Deshpande and DK Shivkumar have publicly condemned the attack but their hands are not clean.”

According to report, Bangalore police commissioner Shankar Bidari also hinted at the possibility of a channel being involved in the attack when he said in Bangalore that the broadcast van of ‘another channel’ had been parked at the venue of the debate for a long time.

He said that the channel had information that an attack was going to take place but did not inform the police, said report.
