Kalburgi’s murder investigation will have a quieter death

As we step into 2017, it seems eons ago that the Modi government was inundated with the “intolerance” campaign by the mainstream media and the left intellectual brigade. Deaths of Dabholkar, Pansare and Kalburgi were all painted with a political hue and PM Modi was blamed, irrespective of the fact that State governments have the responsibility of law and order.

In August 2015, Prof. M.M.Kalburgi was killed by assailants when he answered his door. Not once did the intellectual brigade take Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah to task. This even when you consider that there has been spate of suicides in police department before and after Kalburgi’s death.

Notwithstanding the hypocrisy, it has now been reported in the vernacular media that the professor was killed due to a property dispute. Here is the chronology of developments in this matter:

After Kalburgi’s death, opposition parties asked for the matter to be handed over to CBI. However, due to the pressure from the left intellectuals, the matter was referred to CID (as it is under the control of the state government). Police has, during its investigation, arrested two people from Vijayapura (old Bijapur) – from where Kalburgi hailed. However, another media house reported that no arrests have been made. Upon interrogation, these two have said “We are not aware of Kalburgi’s ideas, books or writings. However, we had issues related to properties.” (translated from Kannada). This claim has not been refuted by the police. Popular Kannada daily Udayawani also reported that police has not yet given the report to the state government.

The mainstream media, which made such noise at the peak of its “intolerance” campaign is unsurprisingly quiet on the recent revelations. If the findings were different, then we could have expected uproar as that would fit very well prior to the UP elections. Now, all we can expect is to see the story die a less tragic death than Professor Kalburgi.
