CID begins probe into DySP suicide

A CID team led by IGP Hemanth Nimbalkar began its probe into the suicide of DySP M K Ganapathi. The team arrived at Ganapathi’s house in Rangasamudra at 12.45 pm.

They spoke to Ganapathi’s wife Pavana, sons Nehal and Sahil, and brothers Thammaiah and Machaiah. The team has also collected separate  opinions from Ganapathi’s wife and sons. Speaking to the media, Nimbalkar said: “As the investigation is under progress, we cannot divulge details.”

In Madikeri, the CID officials visited the office of the local channel which aired Ganapathi’s interview, and spoke to auto driver Dinesh and the staff of Vinayaka Lodge where the DySP committed suicide.

Machaiah said that the case should be handed over to the CBI. “The handing over the case to the CBI will give justice to my brother and peace to his soul,” he told the media.

Machaiah said the state government has handed over the case to the CID. “We do not have any suspicion on the probe by the CID. As there is a possibility of twisting the case, we want the case to be probed by the CBI,” he said. “I accompanied police personnel to the room where my brother committed suicide. There was no death note. There were two pen drives,” Machaiah added.

On the other hand, Ganapathi’s father Kushalappa has clarified that he did not submit any written complaint. “During the post mortem of my son, the police had asked my signature. I have not read the copy. In fact my other son Thammaiah only helped Ganapathi to get transfer to Mangaluru. As he was in Mangaluru, he did not discuss any family issues with me. He had come home two months ago,” he added.
