Why is ATM attacker not nabbed so far, asks Ashoka

Why is ATM attacker not nabbed so far, asks Ashoka

 The person who attacked a woman in an ATM being on the loose even after two months since the incident was raised in the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday.

Speaking during discussion on motion of thanks to the Governor’s address, former deputy chief minister R Ashoka, who held the home portfolio, said the police not being able to apprehend the person who attacked a woman in an ATM in Bangalore even after more than two months reflected the crime scene in the State.

“There is photographic evidence, there are fingerprints, yet the culprit is yet to be nabbed. If this is the plight of investigation, how can people be assured of their safety,” Ashoka sought to know. He said the police had formed eight teams but could not crack the case. He demanded the government to take steps to fill up vacancies in the police department.

Communal violence

K G Bopaiah (BJP) alleged that instances of communal violence in the State had been on the rise ever since the Congress government came to power. Banned organisations were resurfacing by changing the names of their outfits and the government had turned a blind eye to the same, he alleged. People who indulged in illegal activities were allowed to go scot free, he said.

Bopaiah charged that Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) was involved in the attack on the district unit president of the BJP in Kodagu recently, but the police had failed to take action.

Home Minister K J George rubbished the allegation stating that culprits had also been arrested and Bopaiah was making baseless allegations. 

During the discussion, N Cheluvarayaswamy (JD-S) had to withdraw a statement made by him on the alleged corruption in the previous government after the BJP members raised a hue and cry over the issue.
