1. Karnataka Seat Share: JD(S) Clinched 10 out of 28, Says Deve Gowda

A clearer picture of the seat sharing between the Congress and the JD(S) for the upcoming General Elections is emerging, with JD(S) supremo HD Deve Gowda announcing his party has “clinched 10 seats” out of the 28 seats in Karnataka.

He was addressing the media after the seat sharing meeting with AICC president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi, on Wednesday, 6 March. A seat sharing meeting between the state level leaders of both parties held in Bengaluru on Monday, 4 March, had ended inconclusively.

However, both parties have reached an agreement in the meeting held in New Delhi, said sources.

Escalating his attack on the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday called it an “enemy of farmers” and accused the State of not yet submitting the list of beneficiaries under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme (PMKSNS).

Addressing a public rally in Kalaburagi, which is the second public meeting to be addressed by him in the State ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, the Prime Minister continued to ridicule Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy by calling him “remote-controlled Chief Minister.”

The Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by B.K. Singh, probing the murder of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh has taken over the probe into the murder of M.M. Kalburgi from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The Indian scholar and rationalist was shot dead at his Dharwad residence on August 30, 2015.

The SIT has held two meetings to review the investigation into the case so far; no new arrests have been made. IPS officer M.N. Anucheth, who is the Chief Investigation Officer (CIO) in the Gauri case, will have the same role in the Kalburgi murder as well.

City police solved a murder case by identifying the victim by the tailor’s tag on his shirt and arrested his wife and her lover who eliminated him.

The Doddabelavangala police arrested Gayathri (25) and her lover Kiran Kumar (20) on charges of murdering Umesh, a resident of Kodihalli. Umesh was killed as he suspected the relationship between Gayathri and Kiran Kumar.

Kiran Kumar’s brother, a juvenile and also an accused in the case, has been secured and sent to the state-run boys’ remand home. The Doddabelavangala police were informed of a man’s body lying at an isolated spot in the Ujjini forest area on February 26 last year.
