Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai promises impartial probe into contractor Santosh Patil’s death | Mangaluru News – Times of India

MANGALURU: Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday said that an impartial probe will be conducted into the death of a Belagavi- based contractor Santosh Patil who in his letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month had accused Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister K S Eshwarappa of demanding 40% commission through his associates.
The chief minister told reporters on Tuesday that after the preliminary investigation into the cause of death, further action will be taken. The FSL experts from Mangaluru have reached Udupi. The contractor was found dead at Shambhavi Lodge on Tuesday.
“A thorough and systematic investigation into the death will be conducted by the police. The government will not interfere in the investigation. The veracity of the message doing rounds on WhatsApp following the death of the contractor will be looked into. The investigation will probe into the background and reason for the death. The police have been asked to conduct a fair investigation. The preliminary report will bring out the truth on the reason behind the death” asserted the CM.
The CM said that minister K S Eshwarappa had denied the kickback allegations levelled by Patil. Further, he had even filed a case against Patil for defamation.
