BENGALURU: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said it is not appropriate to comment on the Posco case registered against Murugha Mutt seer Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru of Chitradurga, as it is under investigation.

"See, any case which is important, both the cases of Posco and kidnapping in Karnataka's Chitradurga have been booked and police are investigating it. It is not appropriate to speak when it's under investigation," said Karnataka CM Bommai.

He further said that the police have been given full freedom and they are investigating it. The truth will come out.

A Posco case was registered against Murugha Mutt seer Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru of Chitradurga in Karnataka reacting to which former state CM HD Kumaraswamy on Saturday said, "This does not surprise me. There were several discussions about this 5-6 months ago. This issue should have been taken care of at the initial stage. It should not affect the religious sphere otherwise," he added.

The Murugha Mutt seer is alleged to have sexually harassed high school girls who were residing in a hostel run by the Mutt, according to the complaint.

Two girls ran away from the hostel and reached Cottonpet police station in Bangalore to file a complaint against the Murugha Mutt seer, as per the complaint.

According to sources, the complaint is likely to be transferred to Chitradurga police as the incident happened there.

"After hearing about the plight of the two female students, an auto driver dropped them to the Odanad organization in Mysore," said Stalin, a member of the Odanad organization.
