Ghost of DySp Ganapathy returns to haunt K J George, BJP threatens statewide stir


Accusing the Karnataka government of a massive cover up in the DySP Ganapathy death case, BJP has threatened to go on a statewide strike. The BJP has accused the Congress of tampering with evidence in the case to ensure a clean chit to those involved.

Ghost of DySp Ganapathy returns to haunt K J George, BJP threatens statewide stir

Armed with a Forensic Science Laboratory report that confirms deletion of certain data from his phone, the BJP has demanded the resignation of K J George and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. State BJP chief is leading the charge and has demanded the case be handed over to the CBI. Ganapathy's family has alleged that data has been deleted to protect influential people, including K J George who was then the Home Minister of Karnataka.

"The forensic report clearly states that some 320 contacts, almost 2,500 photographs, more than 100 emails, 60 SMSes and 145 PDF documents have been deleted from his phone. Call records pertaining to a prominent MLA and a minister have been deleted. How did the CID file a closure report and give a clean chit to those accused?" asked Ganapathy's brother M K Machaiah.

"If data is deleted from Ganapathy's phone it is clear that powerful people are behind this. From D K Ravi to Ganapathy, the state government has continuously targetted officials. The Chief Minister should resign and so should K J George. We have no trust in the state agency and hence the case should be transferred to the CBI," said B S Yeddyurappa who also added that his party will initiate statewide protests over the same.

The allegation of corruption comes as a massive blow to K J George who was forced to resign as the then Home Minister after Ganapathy in an interview hours before his death had named George and a few police officials of harassing him. THe CID in its report last year had given a clean chit to accused persons. It was after the clean chit that George was re-inducted into Siddaramaiah's cabinet but was given the portfolio of Bengaluru Development minister.
