Court allows Ganapathi's kin  to file objections to CID report

 The court of Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) here granted four family members of DySP M K Ganapathi permission to file objections to the ‘B’ report submitted by the CID, which probed the suicide of the police officer.

Ganapathi’s father M K Kushalappa, mother Jaji Poovamma, brother M K Machaiah and sister Sabitha had filed an application in the court on October 24, to consider them as co-complainants.

Ganapathi had committed suicide in a lodge in Madikeri on July 7. Before taking the extreme step, Ganapathi had given an interview to a private channel in which he had named Minister K J George, senior IPS officer A M Prasad, DIG Pranab Mohanty, saying they had harassed him. The CID had given a clean chit to all the three and had submitted the report to the court on September 17. Later, Ganapathi’s son Nehal, who was a private complainant, had expressed satisfaction over the probe.

With the judge Annapoorneshwari allowing the family members to file objections, the private complaint has been given a new lease of life. The CID team on Monday submitted the forensic science laboratory (FSL) report to the court.

According to sources, with the judicial enquiry commencing in the case, the four family members have received notice to appear for enquiry. In response, the family members have said they will be unable to appear for enquiry as they have filed a petition with the Supreme Court seeking that the case be handed over to CBI and that the hearing will commence shortly.
