National Investigation Agency (NIA)
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) recently filed a charge sheet in a special court in Bangalore. The charge sheet said that the violence in Bengaluru on August 12 last year was a major conspiracy by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) to create communal tension in the country. In the violence, the house of Dalit Congress MLA R Akhand Srinivas Murthy and two police stations were vandalized and several vehicles were set on fire.
A person had filed a petition in the Karnataka High Court to get the matter investigated by the NIA, after which the National Investigation Agency started an investigation in the matter. According to NIA sources, the agency has accused 247 people in the case. At the same time, reacting to the charge sheet, Karnataka Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that it was a conspiracy of SDPI and social media has become an easy tool for such organizations.
Violence erupted from a post
The NIA charge sheet said that the immediate cause of the violence was a post on social media by Naveen, the nephew of Pulakeshinagar MLA R Akhand Srinivas Murthy. More than 4,000 people from the minority community became furious after the post, although SDPI activists tagged them and posted a post on social media that insulted Hindu gods.

After the main accused, Feroze Pasha, joined the SDPI, Mohammad Sharif, Muzammil Pasha and other leaders of the SDPI’s Bengaluru district, formed a criminal conspiracy. The NIA said, ‘As part of the conspiracy, they decided to post some derogatory messages through Feroze Pasha’s Facebook account to humiliate and incite the Hindu gods and the Hindu community.
