Kumaraswamy Alleges Sangh Parivar’s Hand in Kallappa Suicide
Vijayapura: JD(S) state president and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy made a serious allegation here on Friday that the Sangh Parivar was behind the suicide of Chikkamagaluru DySP Kallappa Handibag.
He said that gambling, illegal sand extraction and other activities were rampant in Chikkamagaluru district and the immoral earnings from these had led to his suicide. In fact, Handibag was a scapegoat in the entire episode and the Sangh Parivar was behind it.
He went further and accused a former minister and sitting MLA too had a hand in the suicide. MLA A S Patil Nadahalli had given a statement in this regard in the state legislative assembly recently and Kumaraswamy claimed that it was he who got Nadahalli to do so.
Earlier, Kumaraswamy visited the house of Handibag and consoled the family members. A relief cheque of Rs 2 lakh was handed over by Nadahalli to Basamma and Gowramma, the parents of the late officer, at the hands of Anita Kumaraswamy.
