The Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had ordered a probe by a DySP rank police officer however the BJP maintained that the DySP rank officer can’t probe the matter without interference and the government will hush-up the case as part of its “appeasement” politics.

BJP is demanding legal action against three Muslim girls for filming the Hindu girls in the washroom and has claimed that it is an organised crime against Hindu girls.

Karnataka Police is also alleged of harassing the woman activist Rashmi Samanth for raising her voice regarding the issue. The college had maintained that the victim is not willing to lodge the complaint against the Muslim girls while the police maintained that they could not take up the case due to lack of evidence.
