Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Nov 29: The case related to the suicide attempt of N R Santhosh, political secretary to chief minister Yediyurappa, has taken a political colour, with Congress and BJP leaders hurling accusations at each other.

KPCC president D K Shivakumar has demanded a thorough investigation into the suicide attempt. "Investigation needs to be done with regard to the incident. There is a secret video behind this," he told reporters.

Shivakumar further pointed fingers at BJP leaders of the state and said, "A secret video is the reason for the suicide attempt by Santhosh. He was being blackmailed using that video. Information is available that the CD in question has been sent to New Delhi and has reached the hands of top brasses of the party."

Refuting Shivakumar's allegations, minister K S Eshwarappa said, "The statement given by D K Shivakumar is idiotic. He should be ashamed to give such a statement. Let him release the copy of the video if he has one."

Meanwhile, home minister Basavaraj Bommai said that comprehensive inquiry will be conducted into the case.

Santhosh's wife Jahnavi said that her husband was upset with recent political developments. "Santhosh was extremely tense from Friday morning. The recent political developments had upset him. There are no issues in the family and it is only the political matters that are worrying him."

Santhosh, who is undergoing treatment in the hospital, has recovered and been shifted to general ward.

A case of attempted suicide has been registered against him in Sadashivanagar police station. Police said that they will take his statement once he recovers. Dr Naresh Shetty, president of M S Ramaiah hospital said that his condition is stable.
