A case has been filed and the investigations are on and the cops reportedly have the whereabouts of the culprit. An arrest is expected soon. 

Some Kannada websites have claimed the culprit is a history-sheeter, although the police have not confirmed it.

His father Jaggesh, in a press release, called it an unfortunate incident and denied any enmity angle. "If they had stabbed his even a little upwards, things would have taken a different turn by now. Thank God, he is safe and is recovering well," he said.

Jaggesh said his son is out of danger. He also thanked the cops for reacting quickly to the situation. 

Gururaj turned hero in Gilli in the year 2009. He has acted in a couple of movies but has no big hits to his credit.
