Bangalore: The police on Thursday closed a case
against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa for allegedly
slapping his car driver on the back near BJP office last
night.
According to police sources, "a complaint was filed by
one Narasimha Murthy, an advocate, charging the Chief Minister
with alleged violation of human rights by slapping his driver
yesterday".

"Though it was not a cognisable offence, a complaint was
taken and an inquiry conducted, which revealed that there was
no merit in the case and the Chief Minister only showed his
hand to the driver to stop the vehicle and did not slap him on
the back", the sources told PTI.
The case has been accordingly closed, the sources said.
