Moodbidri: Family Seeks Probe into Prashant Poojary Killing

Moodbidri: Yashoda Poojary, whose son Prashant was recently killed by miscreants here, addressed a media meet in the press club on Friday.

She alleged that influential persons had supported the culprits in the murder. Since they had to be identified and acted against, only a CBI inquiry.

She added that the police had arrested such persons as were directly involved in the murder and taken steps to arrest the rest. But an elected representative and a few entrepreneurs had supported the killers and there was pressure on the local police not to act against them. If those influential people had to be arrested, the CBI had to step in. Then only her son’s soul would attain peache, she said.

She further said that even for courtesy’s sake, MLA Abhayachandra Jain had not visited her house to offer condolences. Instead, he had called her son a ‘trouble-maker’ while speaking to a TV channel. It was inhuman and deserved condemnation, she argued.

Prashant’s father Ananda Poojary and sister Prameeta were present at the media meet.
