Bengaluru, Feb 27: A 60-year-old man who was arrested in connection with a case of impersonating a government official allegedly died by suicide in Vidyaranyapura in Bengaluru on Friday, the police said. The case pertained to the impersonation of a government official employed at the Bengaluru Development Authority.

The accused was arrested on February 24; and was facing charges of duping several people by luring them to allot a site in Bengaluru. The court had granted police custody on February 25.

The deceased was identified as Siddalingaswamy, who was a resident of Hanumantha Nagar, according to the police. An investigating officer told IANS that the deceased had led a life of government official for the last several decades; his wife and daughter had believed his facade as well the police noted.

The police officials said, “He used to wait in BDA premises hunting for gullible investors. While posing to be a BDA official, he gathered information about the investors and collected money from them in lieu of allotment of a new site or exchanging site of BDA layouts.”

The police officer added his cover was blown when the Hanumantha Nagar police received a complaint against him about ten days ago.

The police said that he was taken to his flat to conduct a detailed search. At home, he died by suicide. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival, the police added.

The police recovered fake letterheads, stamp papers, seals and other materials that are needed to allot BDA sites. Since then, a case has been registered and an investigation is underway.

Kalaburgi, Feb 20: Accusing former Karnataka Chief Ministers Siddaramaiah and HD Kumaraswamy of destroying their respective political parties, the Karnataka Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister KS Eshwarappa on Saturday slammed both the former chief ministers for their remarks over Ram temple donation.

"One Siddaramaiah is enough to destroy the Congress party. Similarly, HD Kumaraswamy is destroying his party (JD-S). Even the poor are giving Rs 10 each (for Ram temple) out of devotion. Siddaramaiah says that it is disputed land, so he will not contribute," Eshwarappa said while speaking to ANI.

This comes after Siddaramaiah, earlier in the day, accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of playing with the emotions of the people in the name of God, and demanded Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra trust to give accounts of donations collected to construct Ram temple in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.

Before this, Former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had targeted Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) saying that there is no transparency in Ram Temple donations.

Comparing senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah to extremist Islamic organisation, Eshwarappa said, "Popular Front of India (PFI) tells people to not contribute (for Ram Temple) as it is disputed land, Siddaramaiah says the same. They have the same opinion. There is no difference between Siddaramaiah and PFI."

The remarks come in the backdrop of Karnataka Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai's statement on Friday that a case has been filed against Anis Ahmed, general secretary of PFI, after he allegedly asked Muslims not to offer donations for the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
