Hubli, Jun 12(UNI) Former Karnataka Chief minister H D Kumaraswamy today demanded a judicial inquiry into the police firing at Haveri on Monday that took life of a farmer and injured five others.
Talking to presspersons after visiting the injured at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences here, he said since no responsible officer or person had ordered firing on the fateful day.
Visual media reports had indicated that a gun was snatched from a policeman and rounds was fired from it and this had lead to the suspicion, he claimed.
He challenged Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to come out with the details on his allegation that there was role of rival political forces in the violence that broke out at Dharwad-Hubli twin cities and Haveri districts.
"Let him (Mr Yeddyurappa) come out with the truth on whether these political forces were from his own party or from other parties," he said.
