'Attack on IAS officer: Govt to act on CID report'

CM says no individuals at ATI will be shielded

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday asserted that the government would act on the report of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) that is probing into the allegations of police lapses that led to the assault on the Director General of Administrative Training Institute (ATI) Rashmi V Mahesh.

Answering media queries after his arrival at his house in the city, Siddaramaiah said there was no question of shielding individuals who have been accused of irregularities worth over Rs 100 crore that occurred during the tenure of previous DG of the institute Amita Prasad.

Siddaramaiah added that Additional Chief Secretary T M Vijaybhaskar was vetting into the allegations of embezzlement of funds.

Similarly, the government was initiating stern action against those schools in Bangalore -- Vibgyor, Orchids and Cambridge, where minor girl students were sexually assaulted, triggering outrage from parents and public alike.

When Siddaramaiah’s attention was drawn towards the recent allegations of Shimoga MP B S Yeddyurappa that there was no law and order in the State, Siddaramaiah termed it an impulsive reaction of the BJP.

“The saffron party had conspired to take advantage of some situations and spread communal hatred in the State. The government got wind of the same, and successfully nipped such vicious activities of the party,” he said, adding that there was no orderliness in the State during the BJP regime, when there were frequent attacks on churches and homestays, and also when a farmer was killed in a golibar.
