Bengaluru: The opposition Party lashed out at Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy over the issue and termed his statement irresponsible and nonsense.

In the video, Kumaraswamy was heard saying: “I don’t know how you will handle it (the case).. because it was your responsibility. I am actually disappointed because it (the murder) brought a bad name. He (Prakash) was a good person. There is no problem if you shoot such people mercilessly, I am least bothered (about the consequences),” the chief minister had said.

Slamming Kumaraswamy, state BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa “I never expected this from the chief minister. If he speaks like this, what will happen to the law and order situation? An irresponsible and nonsense statement by Kumaraswamy,” told reporters here Tuesday, December 25.

Senior BJP leader and former minister Shobha Karandjale said it was a clear case of anarchy and lawlessness.

Prakash was hacked to death allegedly by four men in Maddur town of Mandya district Monday evening, police said. The assailants had stopped Prakash’s car when he was going home and hacked him to death with machetes. Tension prevailed in Maddur and Mandya after the incident as people ‘gheraoed’ the police station demanding immediate arrest of the culprits.

After the chief minister got the news about the killing, he vented out his anger on a senior police officer of the district over the phone, a video of which went viral. In the video, the chief minister is heard saying there were three murders in the past in Mandya before he came to Bengaluru and he was disappointed with the police.

The chief minister on Tuesday also recalled that there were two murders earlier in the locality and that he had asked the police to be careful as the accused in the crime were released on bail. “.. but no measures were taken. I think that police did not do their duty properly,” he said.

He later visited Mandya and attended the funeral of Prakash. Kumaraswamy expressed his grief and squarely blamed the police laxity for the killing.
