The former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Tuesday took the government to task for not taking any action against Mohammad Wazir Ahmed, Inspector-General of Police, North-Eastern Range, in connection with the death of a police sub-inspector in a shootout recently.
In a press release here, Mr. Yeddyurappa said that the government appeared to be protecting the IGP instead of keeping him under suspension and ordering an inquiry.
He wondered how the officer could direct Sub-Inspector Mallikarjun Bande (now deceased) to arrest contract killer Munna Darbadar alive. He also questioned the action of the IGP directing the Gulbarga district police to remove names of people belonging to one particular community from the rowdy sheet, while the Superintendent of Police had gone on leave.
