A petrol pump attendant and his cab driver friend have been arrested for abusing Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and his family in a selfie video.The video, taken on May 23 when the Lok Sabha election results were announced, went viral on WhatsApp and reached a JD(S) worker who then filed a complaint with the High Grounds police. The video contains offensive language against Kumaraswamy, his father and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and son Nikhil Kumaraswamy. Swinging into action, police arrested Siddaraju, 26, who works at a petrol pump, and his friend Chamaraju, 28, a cab driver. Both are residents of Channapatna, Ramanagaram district.

They claimed to have made the video in a drunk state. The duo has been booked under IPC sections 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 505 (2) (intent to incite offence against community). A court has remanded the men in judicial custody.
