Denmark's Lego had a hard 2017, with the building block maker registering a reduction in sales for the first time in 13 years. Lego tried to replicate the strategy in 2017 with offerings tied to "The Lego Batman Movie" and "The Lego Ninjago Movie".

Shetty, 73, earlier a judge in the Karnataka High Court, was rushed to a private hospital in the city centre where doctors said he was out of danger. It seemed like it was an attempt to murder the Lokayukta. His duty is to receive and act on complaints against public servants' corruption.

Reports quoting sources said the attack was allegedly in retaliation to the Lokayukta's dismissal of a case the attacker had filed against a government official in the past. So you can see what kind of security Siddaramaiah govt has provided us. Meanwhile, Congress leader Brijesh Kalappa has said defended the security breach.

Initial investigations revealed that the metal detector detector in the Lokayukta office building was not functioning, Kumar said.
