Puttur: Pansare Killing in Maharashtra – Fingers of Suspicion Pointed at Jayaprakash of Kadaba

Puttur: One Jayaprakash aka Jayanna (42) hailing from Noojibaltila near Kadaba, who is commonly called Anna by those knowing him, was linked to a bomb blast had taken place at Diwali in Margao in Goa in 2009. Two persons had died in the blast and many injured.


He had ealier worked as a driver for the Sanatan Samstha’s Mulki unit, sources said.

In 2012, a team from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had arrived in the district and taken two persons into custody. But Jayaprakash was at large. He had left home about almost a decade ago, leaving behind wife and a child.

The NIA team had arrested two men related to Jayaprakash and also announced a prize of Rs 25,000 for his arrest.

Now post-murder of Govind Pansare, a Maharashtra-based rationalist, fingers of suspicion are being pointed at Jayaprakash. There could be a link between the murders of Pansare and Dhabolkar in Maharashtraand Dr Kalburgi in Karnataka, according to clues available to investigators.

His family sources in Kadaba said that he had been visiting this native place at regular intervals before the Malegaon blast. But after the NIA team visited the district in 2012, he has not shown his face.

The NIA team, during its visit, had verified the records of the assistant regional transport office in Puttur, where he is said to have obtained a driving licence.

With fresh suspicions surrounding him, both the state-level and national-level investigators are likely to land in Kadaba soon. But police sources denied any knowledge about any such visits.
