FSL report suspicious: Shettar
Hubballi, (DHNS): Raising question about the reliability of Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) report which confirmed the voice of State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa and Union minister Ananth Kumar in a video clip in which they were heard discussing about the payment of kickback to the high-command, Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar stated that the FSL report was obtained in just 20 days that included several holidays.
“Home Department advisor Kempaiah, DGP M N Reddy and chief minister’s principal secretary L K Atheeq are suspected to be involved in getting such a report from the FSL, as part of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s political vendetta, who wants to get Mr Yeddyurappa arrested at any cost,” Mr Shettar said.
He told media persons here on Monday that the entire CD of the programme in which Mr Yeddyurappa and Mr Ananth Kumar participated should be probed, as the video clip provided by the Congress leaders is a doctored one.
“The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has not yet initiated probe on the complaint filed by the BJP, against ministers and others for fabricating false evidence in this case.
The CID gave clean chit to minister K J George in DySP M K Ganapathy suicide case, without getting the FSL report during a 40-day probe, while the FSL report obtained so fast in this case is suspicious,” he said.
Though a total of 28 cases against Mr Siddaramaiah and his family members are filed with the ACB, only cases against Opposition leaders are taken up immediately, due to political vengeance of Mr Siddaramaiah. A false case was filed against me also, after I unearthed Arkavathy Layout denotifaction case, Mr Shettar charged.
If Mr Siddaramaiah has no role in Arkavathy Layout case, why Kempanna Commission report is not disclosed? We will demand to table it before the Legislative Assembly in the next session, he added.
