Bengaluru: A few days after sleuths of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) filed a ‘B’ report in Deputy Superintendent of Police M.K. Ganapati’s suicide case, his father and brother have made serious allegations that the slain officer’s wife Pawan was pestering him to bring money home.

In an interview to a regional TV channel, Mr Ganapati’s father Kushalappa alleged that his son was not happy with his wife. “Ganapati loved his children, but was upset that his wife was not giving attention to the family. She was also not letting him spend time with his sons. Even after his death, she is not interested in getting justice for him. That is why, Nehal (Ganapati’s elder son) is not interested in challenging the ‘B’ report filed by the Criminal Investigation Department in the court,” he said. He further reiterated that his son was harassed by former Home Minister K.J. George. “It is shocking that the Criminal Investigation Department has given him a clean chit. My son was harassed by him. The minister had once shouted at my son when he went to meet the minister. It’s just one example,” Mr Kushalappa said. Mr Ganapati’s brother Machaiah alleged that crores of rupees had exchanged hands in this case.  “Now people are thinking that our family has made a fortune out of this case and we have betrayed Ganapati. We are fighting for justice for him but the image of our family is tarnished as they think we are keeping quiet after taking money,” he said.
