In fresh trouble for the Reddys, a man in Karnataka reportedly committed suicide accusing Karnataka mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy and a Karnataka Administrative Service  (KAS)officer of harassing him, CNN-News 18 reported. The Indian Express could not verify the same.

Ramesh Gowda, reportedly Reddy’s driver, named Reddy and a KAS officer in his suicide note accusing them of harassing him because he knew how they converted Rs 100 crore of black money for Reddy’s daughter’s wedding. CNN-News 18 reports that he committed suicide by consuming poison. Gowda alleged that Reddy paid 20 per cent commission to the KAS officer, news agency ANI reported.

This was done post the demonetisation announcement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016. Gowda worked as a driver in Bengaluru. More details are awaited.

    Commentators here miss the point. When Janardan Reddy was arrested and sent to jail while his legal case was proceeding why it was not speeded up and why was he given bail. And who gives bail? Was it the judge in Hyderabad or BJP? The is the same story repeated in all cases where criminal politicians are involved like in the case of Lallu Yadav and other mafia king Politicians in Bihar all over India. Modi, in fact had asked Chief Justice of Supreme court to conduct Speedy trials of all criminal politicians, so that they do not continue to influence the judicial cases of their peers. The chief Justice rejected his advice on the grounds that special dispensation can’t be given to politicians. In this he ignored the fact that criminal politician in power area capable of doing greater harm than other criminals
