Bengaluru, Sept 17, 2016: The CID, which probed the alleged suicide case of Mangaluru DySP Ganapathy, has given a clean chit to former Bengaluru development minister KJ George and two other senior IPS officials Prasad and Lokayukta ADG Pronab Mohanty today.
According to sources, the CID team tried to find whether the former minister and other senior officials named by Ganapathy in his interview to a news channel, had harassed the DySP to such an extent that he allegedly committed suicide. However, the probe team couldn’t spot any foul play, handing a clean chit to all named in the case.
KJ George was questioned by CID officials for over two hours and several calls between Ganapathy, KJ George and the two officers were examined, but the investigation failed to bear any concrete outcome that could prove the allegations made by the cop.
Sources have also informed that after the clean chit, KJ George might find a berth in the Siddaramaiah government.
Mollera K Ganapathy (51), the DySP posted at IG office in Mangaluru, killed himself on July 7, after leaving a suicide note, which was found at the site.
In the suicide note, Ganapathy had allegedly blamed a senior police officer and an influential politician in Dakshina Kannada for taking the extreme step. The suicide note reportedly alleged that the officer was harassing him by seeking money for giving him a clean chit in a Church related case which Ganapathy handled seven years ago.
He had committed suicide hours after he gave an interview to a local television channel, police sources claimed. In the interview, he alleged he was being harassed by ADGP (Intelligence) A M Prasad and former home minister and Bengaluru Development Minister K J George and they should be held responsible if something happens to him. The officer reportedly said there is no place for honest police officials under the current Congress government.
