'CID capable of cracking Kalburgi murder case'

Home Minister G Parameshwara on Friday exuded confidence in cracking the murder case of scholar M M Kalburgi, by nabbing his killers soon.

Speaking to media persons, after participating in the passing out parade of the 44th batch of probationary warders, the minister said that there were similarities between the murders of Kalburgi and fellow rationalist Narendra Dabholkar in Maharashtra.

To a reported comment of Union Minister of State for Home Kiran Rijiju, denying any relationship between thinkers and killers, the minister said, “I don’t know why he (Union minister) made such a comment. If there is any information related to the killing of Kalburgi with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or Intelligence Bureau (IB), they can share it with the State home ministry,” he said.

Parameshwara said that there was no need to handover the case to CBI and the Karnataka CID was capable enough to crack the murder.

The minister also pooh-poohed the allegations made by MP and BJP State unit president Pralhad Joshi that fund crunch was coming in the way of the CID to continue with the murder probe.

 Earlier, in his address to the probationary warders, the minister said, State Home department will not hesitate to act against those who attempt to disturb law and order in the State.

The minister lamented attempts to question the Constitution of India.
