Shivamogga: Death of a person in Sunnadakoppa village of Shikaripura taluk here has left a sense of suspicion among the villagers.

A man named Lakshman Nayaka died on March 28 and his family members have alleged that he has died due to police atrocities.

Addressing a news conference in connection to the same, Superintendent of Police K M Shantharaju said that a probe has been initiated into the case and details of the reasons that caused the death will be clear only after the Post Mortem report is out.
