Rs 1 crore defamation suit against HDK

Mangaluru North BJP president Dr Y Bharath Shetty has filed a defamation suit for Rs one crore against JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy for blaming BJP for the murder of the party worker Deepak Rao at Katipalla in Surathkal.

Briefing media persons here on Tuesday, he said that both the Congress and the JD(S) have been issuing baseless statements after Rao's murder.

"Being in a responsible position, JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy has issued an immature statement. Mangaluru North MLA Mohiuddin Bava has also alleged that BJP is involved in the murder. Kumaraswamy has intentionally given the statement to mislead the investigation," he claimed.
