“I always said I am innocent. It was a politically motivated targeting. I am grateful to my party high-command, they stood with me despite many allegations from BJP including by Prime Minister Modi,” George told ANI.

Ganapathy allegedly committed suicide in a lodge in Karnataka’s Kodagu district on July 7 in 2016. He was the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of Mangaluru at that time.

In a video message, he had alleged that George, A M Prasad and Pranab Mohanty were responsible for his death. Subsequently, in October 2017, the CBI had booked George on the charges of abetment to suicide.
