Chikmagalur: Minister R Ashoka said that investigation in connection with the blast incident at a crusher site in Shivamogga will not be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Addressing presspersons here Ashoka said, “Karnatakapolice are capable of carrying on the investigation with in connection with the blast at railway crusher site in Shivamogga therefore the case will not be handed over to the CBI.”

“The case will be investigated properly and necessary action will be taken against those responsible,” he added.

At least six people were killed in an explosion at a stone quarry on the outskirts of Shivamogga city on Thursday night.

Yediyurappa on Friday had announced Rs 5 lakh to the families of those deceased and had ordered a high-level probe into the incident.

Three people have been detained in connection with the case.

Later speaking to reporters in Mysuru, the Chief Minister said, mining and quarrying were inevitable for development works like roads and national highway projects, as he hinted about providing an option for regularising those that are illegal.

The statement from Yediyurappa hinting about providing an option for regularising mining and quarrying that are illegal, drew sharp reaction from the Leader of Opposition and Congress leader Siddaramaiah.

He said the statement indicates that the Chief Minister has colluded with the people involved in illegal activities.

“Where is the punishment for illegal activities then..This is a highly condemnable and irresponsible statement…it shows Yediyurappa is supporting illegal acts,” he said.
