Manippady files plaint

Former chairman of the Karnataka State Minorities Commission and BJP member Anwar Manippady on Saturday filed a complaint with the Inspector General and Director General of Police, Lalrokhuma Pachuau, against the Women and Child Welfare department for fabricating documents against him in a missing girl’s case.

Manippady met the IG&DGP on Saturday to submit his complaint copy. In his two-page letter, Manippady has asked the DGP and the Bangalore police commissioner to provide him and his family police protection and launch an investigation into the matter as to who is/are responsible for fabricating the documents against him to defame him.

In his letter, the BJP functionary said the documents had been fabricated to settle a score with him for his report on the Wakf property scam. “It is relevant to state that fearing the discovery and revelations regarding the land scams of Wakf properties, the vested interests, as stated above, have been issuing threats by making threatening calls and warning me that I would be killed and with dire consequences to my body and limb,” Manippady has claimed.

 He has also sent a legal notice through his lawyer to Minister for Women and Child Welfare, Umashree. He has asked the minister to retract her statement which, he claimed, stated: “... that Manippady is involved in an incident relating to missing of a girl by name Salma” of which he is not at all concerned and of whom he has no knowledge.
