Around this time two strangers who  arrived by bike stopped in front of his car and told Prof. Nayak that his car tyres  had got punctured. Prof. Nayak who had checked the tyres before starting and found  everything in order was aware of the intention of the strangers  and proceeded  without stopping his vehicle thus  defeating the ploy of  the miscreants to assault him once he alighted from his car.

Prof. Nayak has strongly suspected the involvement of Baliga murder accused behind this act and adds that the miscreants who approached  him might be  the hired goons who were acting at the behest of some one.

Prof. Nayak who is facing threat to life ever since he has been spearheading the fight for justice in the RTI  activist Vinayak Baliga murder case has  been provided gun man protection. However, the miscreants had followed him on  March 15 morning being aware that the gunman was not along with Prof. Nayak during that time.

Prof. Narendra Nayak has lodged a complaint with Barke police and the case has been entrusted to the CCB police. Meanwhile, following the incident Prof. Nayak has been provided 24 hour prtection by police gun men.
