Bengaluru, May 12 (UNI) Former Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai voiced serious apprehensions on Sunday regarding the ongoing Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into the Prajwal Revanna case, stressing the imperative need for Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) intervention to ensure a fair and unbiased investigation.

Bommai, addressing reporters during a press briefing, openly criticized the SIT’s management of the case involving Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna, citing arrests of informants and a lack of significant progress in apprehending the accused. He insisted that the current course of the investigation had veered off track and necessitated immediate redirection under the jurisdiction of the CBI.

He reiterated his call for a CBI probe, emphasizing the crucial role of transparency and comprehensiveness in the investigative process.

However, he assured that internal grievances would be addressed, underscoring the unwavering authority of decisions made by national leadership.

Earlier in the day, Bommai, accompanied by Opposition leader R Ashok, paid a visit to Manipal Hospital to inquire about the health of former Chief Minister SM Krishna.
