Bangalore: Karnataka government today appointed
DGP (CID) Roopak Kumar Dutta to probe police role in the March
2 violent incidents in the city civil court premises and
submit his report in a month.
The order comes in the wake of Chief Minister D V
Sadananda Gowda promising an In-House inquiry into the
incident by a senior police officer during separate meetings
with advocates and newsmen on March 6.
Dutta would look into the allegations of excess use of
force by police beating up advocates at the court complex,
as alleged by lawyers, according to a press release.
The officer would also probe policemen allegedly using
obscene language against senior police officers on their
wireless sets and setting fire to vehicles parked on court
premises, the release said.
Allegations were levelled by lawyers that police set
parked vehicles on fire and indiscriminately resorted to
lathicharge at K R Circle, Mysore Bank Circle and on court
premises without the Court Presiding Officer`s orders.
