DySP suicide: cops refuse  to file FIR against George

DySP M K Ganapathi’s wife, sons and relatives staged a protest in front of the Kushalnagar Rural police station on Sunday night after the police refused to file an FIR against Bengaluru Development Minister K J George and two senior IPS officers.

The protest was staged minutes after Ganapathi’s wife and sons–Pavana, Nehal and Sohil–filed a six-page complaint against George, ADGP (Intelligence) A M Prasad and IGP (Lokayukta) Pronab Mohanty.

In the complaint, Nehal and Sohil have said that the statements made by their father before committing suicide were true and sought three separate FIRs against the trio.

“Our father took the extreme step following the harassment by the trio and the police are trying to destroy the evidence,” they stated in the complaint and sought justice to them, as well as their mother.

Pavana stated that George and the two IPS officers were harassing her husband after the 2008 Mangaluru church attack incident. “Whatever Ganapathi said before the media is true and action should be initiated against the trio,” she stated in the complaint.

The police, however, told Ganapathi’s kin that since the sub-inspector was not present, and as a complaint has already been filed in Madikeri police station, which is now being probed by CID, another FIR is not possible. The police also told Ganapathi’s kin that they would hand over a copy of the complaint to CID officials.

An enraged Pavana and her sons then staged a protest and shouted slogans against the government as well as George. JD(S) working president Sanketh Poovaiah and Ganapathi’s brother M K Machaiah, were present, along with others.
