Anant Kumar Hegde involved in another accident: Two in a month

In April, the minister's convoy was involved in an accident at Halageri in Ranebennur taluk. It may be recalled that the minister had said that there was a deliberate attempt on his life.

The minister said a truck tried to ram into his car when he was travelling near Halageri in Ranebennur taluk of Haveri district around 11:30 pm.

The truck missed the minister's car and hit the escort vehicle. Since our vehicle was at top speed, it missed the hit, the minister also said. The minister also tweeted a photograph of the accident. The truck driver has been identified as Nasir. I suspect a serious attempt on my life looking at the incident as it doesn't make an accident.

The driver has purposefully tried hitting our vehicle and then hit our escort vehicle. As our car was running at a good speed we passed before he could ram us," the minister said. He suspected that there could be a larger nexus behind the incident and expressed confidence that the police would expose the same.

He also said that the truck driver was not under the influence of alcohol when he was caught.
