Protesters demand CBI probe on DySP Ganapathi suicide

Members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KaRaVe) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Yuva Morcha  staged protests in twin districts on Saturday, demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the unnatural deaths of two Deputy Superintendents of Police (DySP) in the state in one week.

In Mysuru, members of KaRaVe staged a protest near Gandhi Statue in front of District Court Complex while BJP workers protested at Gandhi Square in city. Chamarajanagar BJP district unit members took out a protest march in the town.

The agitators complained that there is no protection for government officials in the state. The Congress government is in no mood to act against a minister and the senior police officials named by DySP Ganapathi in an interview to local TV channel in Madikeri moments before he committed suicide.

The protesters demanded that the mysterious death of DySP be probed by CBI.   Resignation of DySP Anupama Shenoy is a classic example of the failure of the governance, they pointed out.

The BJP workers condemned K J George and demanded his resignation. “The minister has harassed M K Ganapathi when he was holding Home portfolio and district in-charge minister of Kodagu. The law and order in the state has collapsed after Congress party came to power. Siddaramaiah-led Congress government should own moral responsibility for the death of IAS officer D K Ravi, Chikkamagaluru DySP Kallappa Handibag and others.

In Chamarajanagar, BJP workers took out a protest march from the party office to Bhuvaneshwari Circle in the town. The agitating members alleged that the state government has failed to protect upright officials and the administrative machinery has totally collapsed. A minister is behind the death of a DySP and hence, the government should hand over the case to CBI, they demanded.

The protesters said, Ganapathi had served in the department for 24 years and due to harassment by a minister and higher officers, he committed suicide.

Chamarajanagar BJP district unit president K R Mallikarjun and party leaders Shivanna, R Purushottam, R Mahadevu, S Somanayaka, Satish, Krishnamurthy, Seshanna, and Govindaraju were present.
