Karnataka HC's notice to govt to offer job to slain Police’s son

The Karnataka High Court has issued a notice to the state government for not providing job to the son of a police policeman who was killed 30 years ago by late forest brigand Veerappan on humanitarian grounds.

When Veerappan assaulted Ramapura police station near Kollegal in Chamarajanagar district in 1992, Rachappa, a police constable, and four other officers were slain. The family of the deceased police officer has been assured that one of their relatives will be hired on compassionate grounds by the police department. However, the assurances have remained mostly lip service to this point. R. Nandish, the dead cop's son, has filed a plea with the High Court in this regard.

On Tuesday, a bench led by Justice H.T. Narendra Prasad issued notice to the Karnataka government's Chief Secretary, the Principal Secretary of the Home Department, the DG and IGP, the Police Commissioner of Mysuru, and the Superintendent of Police (SP) to submit an appeal regarding the plea.

Rachappa's wife has written to the Mysuru SP, pleading with him to give his son with work on humanitarian grounds. The SP had requested that she submit an application within five years of her kid turning eighteen. Despite filing many applications, the guarantee was just on paper.
