A 47-year-old man committed suicide by shooting himself in Bengaluru, capital of Karnataka. In the suicide note left behind, the deceased has blamed six people, including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Arvind Limbavali, for his death. Police has registered a case against all the accused and started investigation.
At the same time, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has issued his statement on this matter. The CM said that this is some civil dispute, the police have seized the matter and an FIR has been registered. Police will take further action.
The man, identified as S Pradeep, had invested Rs 1.2 crore in a Bengaluru Pub in 2018 with two people. They had promised to return three lakh rupees every month including salary for working for the club. However, after taking the money, the two men, Gopi and Somaiya, refused to return the money to Pradeep for several months. The note also states that Pradeep had to take multiple loans to repay the interest and also had to sell his house and agricultural land to make the payments.
Even after a lot of pleading, the two did not return the money to him. So, Pradeep took the issue to BJP MLA Arvind Limbavali. It further states that the MLA spoke to both the men to return Pradeep’s money, but he said they only returned Rs 90 lakh.
The suicide note also accused a doctor, Jairam Reddy, of filing a civil case against Pradeep’s brother’s property and mentally torturing and harassing Pradeep. The six people named at the end of the note are responsible for him to take such a big step. It also named BJP MLA Arvind Limbavali and accused him of supporting people who did not return Pradeep’s money.
Pradeep was found dead of a bullet injury on his head at Netigere village in Bengaluru on Sunday. According to the police, the suicide note was found in his car and it has the names of six people including the BJP MLA. Police officials have registered a case and further action is being taken.
