DySP Ganapathi’s son satisfied with ‘B’ report

Madikeri, September 30, 2016, DHNS: In a surprising turn of events, late DySP M K Ganapathi’s son Nehal on Thursday did not file his objection towards ‘B’ report submitted by Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to JFMC Court here. The CID, in its report, has given a clean chit to suspects in the case—Bengaluru Urban Development Minister K J George and IPS officers A M Prasad and Pronab Mohanty.


Ganapathi had committed suicide in early July, accusing the trio of torture. Following this, they had been booked under IPC section 306 for abetment of suicide. Nehal’s advocate Prasanna Kumar from Bengaluru told media, “Nehal has appealed to the court to allow him withdraw his private complaint, as he is satisfied with the CID probe.”

It is learnt that Nehal has expressed his helplesness to continue with the case, as it was turning into a hurdle in his education. However, the parents and siblings of the late DySP are not in consonance with Nehal’s decision.

Ganapathi’s parents M K Kushalappa and Jaaji Poovamma, brother M K Machaiah and sister Sabitha filed an application pleading Judge Annapoorneshwari to consider them as complainants in the case. They also filed a ‘protest memo’ against the ‘B’ report, posted for hearing on October 24.

Sources said the other family members of Ganapathi had got a wind of change in Nehal’s stand. At the court, they avoided speaking to each other. Ganapathi’s wife K K Pavana who resides in Mangaluru had stayed away from the court.

Speaking to media, Kushalappa contended that the CID has ignored the vital documents in his son’s laptop and cellphone that could have been key evidences in the case. He was also befuddled about his grandson Nehal, as to what made him accept the B-report, though it cast many aspersions.

He also clarified that they were ready to move Supreme Court in their legal battle against the government. Ganapathi’s brother Machaiah who was also pained at his nephew’s decision to accept the report, said, “He had remained incommunicado all these days”.
