The BJP withdrew Monday its dharna over the death of a police sub-inspector in an encounter after Home Minister K J George promised the Assembly that the House would be apprised of the status of the CID investigation in the matter in the ongoing legislative session.
The Opposition party had used the issue to attack the Siddaramaiah government Friday and disrupted House proceedings Monday, forcing adjournment of the session.
Monday, BJP leader Jagadish Shettar reiterated his demand for action against Inspector General of Police (north-eastern range) Mohammed Vazir Ahmed and sought a CBI probe into the death of sub-inspector Mallikarjuna Bande. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah explained that the CID had already started investigating the matter but Opposition protests continued, forcing Speaker Kagodu Timmappa to adjourn the session for 30 minutes.
