Apex Court directs CBI to investigate M K Ganapathy Murder case[Read Judgment]

The Apex Court on Tuesday directed CBI probe to investigate the death of Bangaluru Deputy Superintendent of Police M K Ganapathy, murdered on July 7 last year, saying that there were “unexpected facts” in the case which needed to be investigated closely.

M K Ganapathy was murdered at Madikeri in Karnataka under mysterious circumstances on July 7 last year. Whether it is a murder or suicide, it needs to be cleared before the trial continues.

The Apex Court bench comprising Justices A K Goel and U U Lalit, agreed to hear the petition filed by the father of the murdered cop, M K Kushalappa, challenging the Karnataka High Court order of rejecting his plea for CBI investigation into the murder case.

We are not determining the nature of the offence or the conviction in the case. But public confidence and societal requirements demand that the guilty person must be prosecuted, the bench stated.

Before being killed, DySP officer directly alleged that he was being harassed by the Home Minister and two other high officials and also submitted that due to his attempts to expose them publicly, if anything wrong happens to him, only they will be held responsible, in view of his statements, only a third party can investigate this case.

Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, representing Karnataka Government expressed that CBI probe will lead this case toward other consequences.

Senior Advocate Singhvi, appearing for George stated that the deceased was suffering from mental depressions and was taking medications. He denied the allegations made by the deceased, saying that there are no “spatial and temporal proximity” to support the allegations.

Senior Advocate Jayant Bhushan appearing for Kushalappa, stated that under CID investigation, they submitted a detailed report on the case without any need of forensic evidence. When the cop exposed the Home Minister and two other officials, they flew from the State, hence, the investigation cannot be conducted by the State Government.

M K Kushalappa and his other son filed a petition against the Karnataka High Court order on October 19, challenging their rejection to hear the plea.
