    Karnataka govt replaces 'minorities' word with 'all innocent' from circular

    The previous circular had asked the police officials to drop cases registered against 'minorities' involved in the incidents of communal clashes.

    Karnataka Minister Ramalinga Reddy on Sunday asserted that the state government is not biased. He also said that it was not a circular, but only a reminder.

    Underlining that the error in the notice has been rectified, Reddy told ANI, "There was some error in the notice, it has been rectified. In last three years we have withdrawn around 400 cases that involve more than 2800 Hindus and 301 Muslims. We are not biased."
