DySP M K Ganapathi suicide: HC dismisses plea for CBI probe
Bengaluru: The Karnataka High court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the suicide case of deputy superintendent of police (DySP), M K Ganapathi.
The application for a CBI probe into the case was sought by M K Kushalappa and M K Machaiah, father and younger brother of Ganapathy respectively, citing that the CID inquiry was not done with sincerity.
However a single judge bench of the high court presided over by Justice S Abdul Nazeer cited that since the CID had already completed its investigations in the case and had even filed its report, there was no need for a CBI inquiry into the same and dismissed the petition.
The bench however observed that the applicants have the liberty to contest or object to the CID report in the court.
It may be recalled that the CID after completing it investigations had filed its ’B’ report in the court on September 17 giving a clean chit to former minister, K J George, and senior police officers, A M Prasad and Pranab Mohanty, the three accused in the DySP Ganapathi suicide case.
