The Home Department is learnt to have acquitted IPS officer Vartika Katiyar of the charge of failure to control communal violence at Madikeri during celebrations of Tipu Sultan Jayanti on November 10, 2015.

The then Congress government had ordered a magisterial enquiry into the violence.

C Shikha, the then Deputy Commissioner of Mysuru, in her magisterial probe, had pointed out that the absence of the SP from the district headquarters due to leave and her failure in conducting peace meetings led to the clash.

The government had accepted the report.

BK Singh, the then IGP (Southern Range) B K Singh had submitted a separate report against the SP to Omprakash, the then DG&IGP.

According to sources, the Home Department issued an order on April 26 acquitting the officer of the charge as it decided to drop the report.
