Moodbidri, Oct 31, 2015: If the BJP and Hindu outfits have been demanding a CBI probe into the Prashanth Poojary murder case of Moodbidri all these days, now the family of Prashanth too has put forth a similar demand.
Prashanth’s mother Yashoda who addressed media persons here on October 30, Friday urged the government to order a CBI investigation into the case of murder of her son. Yashoda also urged the Police Department to interrogate many more persons who might have extended indirect support to the accused in the case.
Taking strong exception to the statement of Moodbidri MLA and State Minister Abhayachandra Jain that the deceased Prashanth was a trouble monger, Yashoda also resented the statement of even Health Minister UT Khader.
She also expressed her gratefulness to the BJP leaders as well as the Hindu organisations which have stood by her family and has extended all possible help.
A financial aid of Rs 1,02,000 was handed over to the family of Prashanth on the occasion on behalf of Puttur Sarvajanika Ganeshotsava Samithi.
Anand Poojari, father of Prashanth, Prameetha, his sister, Dr Prasad Bhandari, Honorary President of the Ganeshotsava Samithi, KP Jagadish Adhikari, BJP leader and many others were present.
