Karnataka cracks down on cop who questioned steel flyover
- The inspector had questioned the logic of the steel bridge
- The government has served him a show-cause notice.
MN Anucheth, DCP, has served a show-cause notice to Raghavendra Ramanna, inspector of Kalasipalya Police Station, for updating a controversial status on his Facebook wall with regards to Bengaluru's steel bridge.
Raghavendra Ramanna had updated his Facebook status on 12th November 2016, which says “Where is your Steel Flyover? Steel Flyover and the black money that was swarming around it have disappeared at one stroke of Modi. Protesters! Say proudly; you have won your fight.”
Around 128 people had liked the status, and more had commented on the status positively. Hundreds of his friends shared this comment. However, the inspector deleted the status as soon as the status went viral.
Responding to this Dr G Parameshwara, Karnataka Home Minister said that suitable action would be taken against him.
“I had shared some other’s status by mistake. As soon as I came to know about this, I immediately deleted it from my Facebook page. I’ve not criticised any of government’s scheme, and I’ve not received any notice from the DCP so far," Raghavendra Ramanna told the media.
