CHITRADURGA: Challakere tahsildar N Raghumurthy has come in for severe criticism for exhibiting irresponsible behaviour by frolicking in the water after a lake started overflowing at Nannival village.
Following incessant rain, the lake at Nannihal village had started overflowing. But the tahsildar, who visited the spot, got into the water and was having fun instead of cautioning villagers about the possible dangers.
The officer lay on a rocky part and was seen enjoying water flowing on him even as some children and elders lied down next to him. A video of the incident has since gone viral, sparking outrage at the behaviour of the government official.
