Bangalore: Former Prime Minister H D
Devegowda on Friday led a padayatra to Chief Minister D V
Sadananda Gowda`s residence demanding a CBI probe into the
murder of Siddalinga Prabhu, an activist who opposed the
controversial NICE project.
The padayatra commenced from the samadhi of Prabhu, who
was a campaigner against Nandi Infrastructure Corridor
"Suspects in Prabhu`s murder should be arrested and the
case should be handed over to CBI," Gowda told reporters after
holding a meeting with the Chief Minister here.
Gowda said the Chief Minister has sought two days time
for taking appropriate action in the murder case. "We will
decide the nature of agitation in the next two days based on
CM`s response," he said.
Prabhu was hacked to death by unidentified persons on
October 17 near Talaghattapura.
"Police are trying to hush up the case by arresting five
persons belonging to an organisation," they alleged.
