While making serious allegations against Karnataka's information, infrastructure and Haj committee minister, Shobha said that the state police was under immense pressure and hence should not be allowed to continue to probe the murder case, "We don't trust the government. The police are under immense political pressure. Let the CBI or NIA investigate this case".

The BJP leader urged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to drop Baig from the cabinet immediately and order a probe against him. Baig, in whose constituency Rudresh was murdered, however rubbished all allegations and called it a political gimmick by BJP.
