Brahmavar: Suspicious death of Shreyas – Former minister Pramod demands justice

Daijiworld Media Network - Brahmavar (PH/HB)

Brahmavar, Nov 12: Former minister Pramod Madhwaraj paid a visit to the residence of Shreyas, who is suspected to be murdered and tried to console the parents on Monday, November 11.

Shreyas (19), first year B Com student, is said to have drowned in the lake in Battamballi, which is located seven km away from his residence.

“BJP is trying to prove that Shreyas died due to drowning in the river, whereas the family feels that their son is murdered. The family is unhappy with the poor police investigations,” said Madhwaraj.

In connection with the case, Madhwaraj pressurized the police department and said, “Within a week, the investigation must go in the proper direction and justice must be provided. Otherwise, a protest will be held in front of SP office by Udupi block Congress and Brahmavar block Congress.”

Shreyas was an admirer of Madhwaraj and his family also attached to the Congress party. A complaint was filed in Brahmavar police station by Suresh Shervegar, Kurpadi about his son Shreyas’ suspicious death.

Shreyas who was pursuing first year B Com in UPMC College had a study holiday on Tuesday, November 5. Shreyas went out of home on November 5 at around 1 pm with his friend Rakesh, Yogish and Sadananda. Some friends of Rakesh accompanied Shreyas in Madisalu lake where they planned fishing activity.

They planned for fishing by conducting blast in the lake. Around 2 pm the blast took place and Shreyas is said to have drowned in the lake and found dead. Suresh Shervegar had gone out of the town for catering service to a function and he was unaware of the incident. He came to know about the incident through a phone call from his uncle’s son Uday at around 3 pm. Suresh rushed to the place with his friend Nagesh where he found his son dead. There are lots of doubts and suspicion in Shreyas’ death.

Rakesh happens to be cousin brother (uncle’s son) of deceased Shreyas and Sadananda was former president of Kalattur panchayat. A complaint was filed in Brahmavar police station for truth to come to light through proper investigation.

Speaking to media, Shobha, mother of Shreyas said, “It was all pre-planned by the BJP youths. They wanted to get rid of my son as they were doing illegal activities. I want my son back. My son was studying at home on that day. His friends took him away for fishing. But later on I heard my son got drowned in same lake where they used blasting (explosive). The alleged man Sadanand is involved in many illegal activities and many cases are filed on him. There is support of BJP to him. There was small mark found on the neck of my son’s dead body and he does not know swimming. Shreyas did not drink water while drowning and his body did not seem to swell up. How this is possible if he has died due to drowning? All these points are creating suspicion about the way in which my son died.”

Shreyas’ mother also expressed her doubt over the police and said that the police are hand in glove with the culprit. They are not showing much interest in investigating the death in any other angle. She pleaded with Madhwaraj to get justice to her son by conducting sincere probe in the case.

Madhwaraj extended financial support to Shreya’s family and ensured that he and Congress workers will be there with them.

Speaking to media, Madhwaraj said, “The police department must investigate this case properly. Within a week investigation must go in a proper direction and justice must be provided. Otherwise, a protest will be held in front of SP office by Udupi block congress and Brahmavar block congress with the support of the public from Karje.”

In connection with the case, a local man said, “There are some people in the area, who are really disturbing peace. If any one goes against their illegal activities, they threaten them. That certain team is indulged in smuggling and is facing case in the police station. But police is not taking any action against them.”

    Bhatta has been busy arguing with Udupi SP trying to protect and reinstate dismissed Udupi town SI Ananthapadmanabha, while all having full knowledge of all criminal activities going on "freely" under this useless MLA's nose.
    Really useless MLA voted by brainless people.
    Thanks to Madhwaraj for taking up the issue of Sreyas, as he is a person who is at the service of the needy whether in power or not.
    Jai Hind!!!!
