Accused in Dhanyashri suicide case identified: SP

Some persons have been pressurising Dhanyashri's father, Yadav Suvarna to furnish wrong information. They have been identified and cases will be booked against them, said SP K Annamalai.

Informing the same to reporters here on Wednesday, he said that the details furnished by Yadav Suvarna in his complaint and the facts in Dhanyashri's death note are contradictory.

He added that police have obtained proof of the attempt to mislead the investigation. "Cases will be booked against the accused and action will be initiated against them under IPC Section 182," he said.

Stating that the police had registered a complaint filed by Dhanyashri's mother Saraswathi on January 7 and that the police had read out her complaint before her, Annamalai said the entire process has been videographed.

Flaying leaders of few associations for issuing statements before the media, especially those who are accused in the case, Annamalai said that those accused in the incident should not issue media statements. "A few channels too will be issued a notice in this regard," he said.

Referring to a Facebook post that said, "the Police Sub Inspector (investigating the case) is working towards getting CM's medal and insulting his (PSI) religion," the SP said that a case has been booked against the person who wrote this post on Facebook. Cases under IPC 353, 353A will be booked against the leader, he said and added that an additional section IPC 153A (disrupting harmony) will be added to the existing section IPC 306 (abetment to suicide).

To another query on those who claimed to be members of Bajrang Dal and issued warnings to female students on WhatsApp, the SP said that four persons have been identified and all of them are from Mudigiere and cases will be booked against them as well.

Special team formed

The SP also said that the identity of the person who had a chat with Dhanyashri and who abused her and her mother has been ascertained and a special team has been formed to nab them. Teams have been sent to Belagavi and Kalburgi too and the accused will be nabbed soon, the SP added.
