BENGALURU: THE CID officials on Saturday questioned ADGP A M Prasad and IGP Pronab Mohanty for nearly two-and-half hours in connection with DySP M K Ganapathy’s suicide.

The CID had recently questioned former Home Minister K J George, who was also named in the dying declaration by Ganapathy.

According to sources from CID, ADGP Prasad recorded his statement saying that Ganapathy had worked under him when he was the IGP of Western Range and he was facing charges of  dereliction of duty.

“During Mangaluru Bandh in August 2008, police had done lathicharge on protesters. Ganapathy had not taken permission from senior officers and a departmental enquiry was ordered against him. Allegations that he was being harassed by seniors is false,” he said in the statement.

When IGP Mohanty was questioned by CID, he stated that Ganapathy never worked under him and it was home department that had written a letter to the Lokayukta in February before Ganapathy’s promotion.

“The department had sought details to know if Ganapathy was facing any criminal charges when he was serving as inspector in various police station limits. I had given a report saying that Ganapathy had no case in Lokayukta,” Mohanty is said to have told in his statement recorded by CID.
