In what may be perceived as damage control in handling the controversy spinning around the resignation of Kudligi Deputy Superintendent of Police Anupama Shenoy, the state government has finally set its foot down and decided to “convince her against quitting”, according to The Hindu.

According to reports, in a cabinet meeting held on Wednesday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that the government does not want Shenoy to resign.

“I have asked the police chief to convince her against quitting. It is our duty to try and prevent state employees from leaving. (But) if she continues to wage war, the government will take disciplinary action,” he was quoted as saying.

Ballari SP R Chetan deputed a sub-inspector, who visited Shenoy’s home in Uchilaa in Udupi district on Wednesday.

Though PSI Mahesh Gowda was unable to meet Shenoy in person, reports say that he was able to speak to her over phone. Shenoy’s brother Achyuth Shenoy informed Gowda that his sister will return to Ballari on Thursday or Friday.

Achyuth further expressed concern over the Facebook posts that appeared in his sister’s name in the last few days and said, “I think it is her fake Facebook account. I have to discuss it with her and if she confirms it, I will lodge a complaint with the cyber police cell.”
