Sack George, don't cast aspersions on SC: BJP

Sack George, don't cast aspersions on SC: BJP

The BJP on Friday said the Congress, instead of sacking Bengaluru Development Minister K J George was casting aspersions on the Supreme Court.

Addressing a press conference here, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said the Supreme Court had rejected the CID probe into the DySP M K Ganapathy case "lock, stock and barrel" and handed over investigation to the CBI.

Javadekar, who has been appointed BJP election in-charge of Karnataka, is in Bengaluru to review the preparations for the party's Nava Karnataka Parivarthana Yatra, scheduled to be launched on November 2.

"For fair investigation, the Apex Court asked the CBI to investigate the case. I am amazed that instead of sacking George, Congress leaders H M Revanna, K R Ramesh Kumar and C M Ibrahim are questioning the motives of the Supreme Court".

He said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's contention that the CID had filed a 'B' report in the case cannot be accepted. "But the 'B' report was not accepted by the Supreme Court. The 'B' report came before the forensic report, which stated that the photos, call details pertaining to the case were deleted," Javadekar said.
