Shimoga: A local court on Monday adjourned
till May 20 hearing of an application by CID seeking
permission to conduct DNA test and voice test on former
Karnataka minister H Halappa, facing charges of rape and
criminal intimidation.

Judicial Magistrate Ravikanth adjourned the hearing
when the case came up before him.

Halappa is facing allegations of raping his friend`s
wife Chandravathi in November. Chandravathi alleged that he
had raped her in their house and later threatened her and her
family.

Halappa, currently under judicial custody, has been
undergoing treatment in a hospital in Bangalore.

Narmadabai further said the Apex Court, while handing
over probe in the Sohrabuddin case to CBI had asked the agency
to investigate if there was a larger conspiracy in the
killing.

Thus, CID ought to wait for its decision on her plea
for CBI probe into the killing of Tulsi in 2006.

CBI, probing the Sohrabuddin case in March had sought
papers of Tulsi Prajapati case from the state police, saying
his encounter was linked with that of Sohrabuddin.

However, the state police had denied handing over the
document saying that SC had given only mandate of Sohrabuddin
case to CBI and this case was being investigated by state CID
crime.
