BENGALURU: The murder case of RSS worker Rudresh in Shivaji Nagar on Friday took a drastic turn, with Udupi-Chikkamgalur MP Shobha Karandlaje alleging that the minister for infrastructure development and wakf Roshan Baig is behind the murder. Karandlaje said the minister instigated the murder of Rudresh, as the latter was politically growing in stature in Shivajinagar.

“If Baig is not behind the murder of Rudresh, he should impress upon chief minister Siddaramaiah to call for a cabinet meeting and hand over the investigation to a central investigating agency,” she alleged.

Karandlaje alleged that Baig couldn’t find tolerable towards Rudresh and his political growth in the constituency. Thus, he instigated the Popular Front of India (PFI) and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) activists to murder the RSS workers in My Live Updates.

In response, Baig said he was ready for any investigation as he had no role to play in the heinous crime. “Having come from Udupi-Chikkamagalur, she does not know Shivaji Nagar. I am a born and brought up Shivajinagar boy. Karandlaje is trying to gain cheap publicity from these kinds of baseless statements,” he said.


Baig said, keeping the 2018 elections in mind, the BJP is trying to flare up communal violence in Shivaji Nagar, and these statements were meant to divide the voters in the constituency.

“I am even considering with my legal team on filing a defamation case against Karandlaje. The BJP MP is trying to malign my name by dragging me into this murder. With the government having apprehended the culprits, the BJP has no issue to rake up and are thus keeping it alive with such statements,” he claimed.
