Tata Auditorium". In a press release, the IISc. said: "The building of the Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology, which is referred to in the report, is an IISc. building, a part of which houses the KSCST office and is maintained by the IISc. The KSCST is a body whose Executive Committee is chaired by the Director of IISc. and co-chaired by the Minister for Finance of the Government of Karnataka. The statement attributed to the Minister that `neither the police nor the staff of the institute had spoken of the firing that took place at other places' is incorrect. All the buildings affected are located within a few yards of each other and are the property of the institute."
