MADIKERI:In a new twist to DySP Ganapathy’s suicide case, his parents, brother and sister filed a plea in a local court seeking to consider them as “complainants” in the case. The CID had submitted a B-report to the court on September 17 giving a clean chit to Bengaluru Development Minister K J George and IPS officers A M Prasad and Pronab Mohanty who had been named by Ganapathy in a TV interview.

As the court had posted the case for hearing on Thursday, Ganapathy’s son Nehal, who appeared with his advocate Prasanna Kumar, informed the court that he has no objection to the B report.

But, Ganapathy’s father Kushalappa, mother Ponnamma, brother Machaiah and sister Sabitha filed an application through advocate Sumanth Phalaksha praying the court to consider them as complainants. Judge Annapoorneshwari posted the next hearing on October 24.

Speaking to reporters, Nehal said he has no interest in continuing the case as he has to pursue his education.

Kushalappa said the CID did not conduct a thorough probe and he is ready to move the Supreme Court to get justice for  Ganapathy. Ganapthy’s brother Machaiah said Nehal did not consult family members before agreeing to the B report.
