Shimoga: Former Karnataka Minister H Halappa,
facing a rape charge, on Sunday appeared before a top official of
the state CID which is investigating the case.

Halappa appeared before DIG (CID) KS R Charan Reddy for
giving statement in the alleged rape case, police said.

Chandravathi, wife of Venkatesh Murthy, a financier had
lodged an FIR, stating that Halappa had raped her some months
ago at her house in Shimoga, the home district of Chief
Minister B S Yedddyurappa.

Halappa had resigned as Minister of Food and Civil
Supplies after a media report on the alleged incident. He has
dismissed the charge as baseless and said it was a political
ploy by his adversaries.

While there was speculation that Halappa had gone missing,
Reddy stated he was not absconding according to them and would
be called for recording of statement when needed.
