The state's Lokayukta was stabbed thrice inside his office premises in Bengaluru on Wednesday by an alleged contractor from Tumakuru over complaints regarding some tenders.
Terming the incident as 'unfortunate', Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said that the Joint Commission is looking into the matter.
"Joint Commission is looking into the matter and it will let me know if there were any security lapses. We will come to know about it by evening," Reddy said.
The judge is out of danger now and undergoing treatment at the Mallaya Hospital. (ANI)
