MYSURU: Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah on Monday ruled out handing over the probe into recent murders of RSS workers to the National Investigating Agency [NIA].

The Karnataka police have already cracked two cases and nabbed the assailants involved in the crime, he said, and added that the BJP had no right to demand a CBI or an NIA probe as it did no such thing itself when it was in power.

Siddaramiah also defended the government's decision to celebrate the Tipu Sultan anniversary. Describing Tipu as a great patriot, the chief ministr accused the BJP of expoliting the communal sentiments of people to create a law and order problem with an eye on the general elections in 2018.

"My government is fully equipped to face the opposition in the ensuing winter session at

Belgaum from Nov 16," he said.
