Siddharamiah’s govt asks for opinion of district police heads regarding withdrawal of cases lodged against minorities in communal incidents

According to a tweet by the official handle of BJP Karnataka, Siddharamiah has asked for the opinion of district police heads in the state regarding withdrawal of cases lodged against minorities in communal incidents.

The letter signed by AIGP (General) of Karnataka, addressed to 23 district police heads (including communally sensitive Mangaluru) asks for their clear opinion regarding withdrawal of cases lodged against minorities for the past five years. It also asks these district police heads to send in a copy of relevant documents along with their opinions to the office of AIGP ( Additional Inspector General of Police).

However the letter from AIGP does not contain any direct reference to PFI as claimed by BJP’s tweet. The Congress party and the Chief Minister have not responded to the tweet so far. The Siddharamiah government has been accused of dropping 175 cases against extremist Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) in 2015.
