Superintendent of Police CB Ryshyanth has suspended Krishnegowda and instructed a team led by Additional SP to investigate the case. Scared that he may be grilled further, Krishnegowda tried to create a drama of suicide attempt.
Krishnegowda went on his two-wheeler to Mannehundi village on his bike, kept his clothes on the river bank and escaped from the place. He later hid in a grass pile at a village in Hunsur. Villagers who suspected his behaviour, brought this to the notice of the police. Deputy SP Prabhakar Rao Shinde and Circle Police Inspector M R Lava immediately visited the spot and took Krishnegowda into custody.
He was taken to the office of SP for further interrogation. Rishyanth is inquiring his role in the bullets missing case. (MR/KS)
