Mysuru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has expressed confidence that the police will conduct an impartial and legal investigation in Prajwal Revanna’s alleged sexual abuse case and cite no necessary to handover the case to CBI,  expressing confidence in the state police.

He was speaking to the media in the city on Friday, responding to the media’s questions about Kumaraswamy’s request to the Governor to hand over the Prajwal Revanna case to the CBI, the Chief Minister said, “I have confidence in our police.” He said that they will conduct an investigation legally.

Has BJP ever handed over a  single case to CBI? Earlier during the Congress government D.K. Ravi case, lottery case, allegation against Minister K.J.George , Paresh Mesta cases were handed over to CBI. The CM questioned whether anyone had been punished in these cases.

In the past BJP itself has described CBI as the Corruption Bureau of Investigation. Devegowda said that CBI is a Chor Bachao organization. The CM questioned that ‘Do they trust the CBI now? “I have faith in the CBI. However, we have faith in our police”. He also explained that a special investigation team has also been formed for this issue.

“Our government does not interfere in legal proceedings and investigations. We believe that the team is doing things appropriately. We have never advised to work against the law. There is no need for an investigation at the international level. We have to trust our police. Is it not our police who investigate all criminal cases? Haven’t  we formed a special investigation team?”  The CM said that our police should  be trusted. 

The Chief Minister made it clear that neither he nor DK Shivakumar was involved in this  case and expressed confidence that the truth will come out.

Responding to the allegation of political interference in Revanna’s arrest, the Chief Minister said, “If there is no truth in the allegation against him, why did he seek anticipatory bail?” He questioned why the anticipatory bail application was rejected.
