By stating that a sincere officer like Ganapathy was depressed and mentally upset, the Government wants to shuts down the case," Shettar said.He questioned how can the police officer’s family get justice when the Government and Police Department booked a suicide case under Section 174 instead of section 306 Indian Penal Code against the senior police officers A M Prasad and Pranab Mohanty, as well as K J George, District-in charge Minister, who was till recently state home minister.In one of his videos, Ganapathy accused the officers and the minister of pressuring him in one particular case.Meanwhile, the ABVP wing at Kushalnagar in Kodagu also staged a protest and demanded that  George to resign as Bengaluru in charge minister.
