A Congress MLA's aide named Narayananaswamy tried to set a Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), office located in the Horamavu area of Bengaluru on fire.
Though the exact date when the incident took place is not known, the video wherein Narayananaswamy is seen throwing a bottle full of petrol went viral on Tuesday.
In the video, the Congress MLA's aide is heard asking the officials to get out of the office. Narayananaswamy started dousing the office in petrol after an official refused to comply with his demands and provide him with a fake 'khata' (land document).
Here's the video of the incident:
