More than a year after Mangaluru DySP MK Ganapathy killed himself after saying that Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George and two other senior officials were responsible for his death, the case has come back to haunt the ruling Congress.
On Thursday, BJP State President BS Yeddyurappa demanded that Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah step down from his post. The BJP leader alleged that Siddaramaiah had forced the CID that investigated the case, to give a clean chit to KJ George.
BS Yeddyurappa demanded that the CBI look into the case.
Stating a report given to the CID by Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) Assistant Director Kumuda Rani that pointed out that several information including call records were erased from Ganapathy's phone, Yeddyurappa accused the CID officials of not conducting a fare probe into the case.
He added that the state government and police officials were hand in glove in closing the suicide case in a hurry. If the state government doesn't order a CBI investigation, Yeddyurappa said that the party will launch a state-wide agitation against it.
According to a report published by The Hindu, the FSL report submitted in September last year, said that crucial evidence such as call records, messages, files saved on pen drives were erased.
