DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE - —PTI

Bengaluru: A com­plaint has been filed against Kar­nataka Chief Min­is­ter HD Ku­maraswamy al­leg­ing that the au­dio clip re­leased about state BJP chief BS Yed­dyu­rappa’s al­leged bid to desta­bilise the­coali­tion govern­ment was a “fab­ri­cated,cre­ated and trun­cated” one,the party said Sun­day.

The com­plaint has been lodged with the Vid­hana Soudha po­lice sta­tion un­der var­i­ous sec­tions of IPC in­clud­ing 463 (Forgery) and 464 (Mak­ing a false doc­u­ment) among oth­ers, and the In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy Act, state BJP said.

Af­ter com­ing to know of the “plot” hatched by Ku­maraswamy and his as­so­ciates to “tar­nish” the rep­u­ta­tion of Yed­dyu­rappa and BJP, M B Maramkal (Yed­dyu­rappa’s as­so­ciate) filed the crim­i­nal com­plaint, it said.

“We hope that the in­ves­ti­gat­ing agency would in­ves­ti­gate into the mat­ter and press crim­i­nal charges against Ku­maraswamy and his as­so­ciates and bring them to jus­tice,” it­said in a state­ment.

Fac­ing tur­moil in the rul­ing coali­tion that has cast a shadow over the sta­bil­ity of his govern­ment, Ku­maraswamy had on Fri­day re­leased the au­dio clip in which Yed­dyu­rappa is pur­port­edly try­ing to lure JDS MLA Na­ganagouda through his son­sha­rana Gouda.
