Karnataka's first woman DG-IGP reprimanded by Mamata for making her walk 'a few meters' at Kumaraswamy's swearing-in
The entire opposition gathered in solidarity at the state secretariat (Vidhan Soudha) in Bengaluru on Wednesday evening to attend the swearing-in ceremony of HD Kumaraswamy. However, the event did not pass off without stirring up yet another controversy.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who too had arrived in Bengaluru to attend the oath taking got furious at a top woman cop for making her walk a few meters extra to reach the venue.

A visibly miffed Mamata Banerjee reprimanded Director General and Inspector General of Police (DG-IGP) Neelamani N Raju as she had to walk a few metres to reach the Vidhan Soudha owing to a number of vehicles blocking the route to the venue, reported news agency ANI.

Neelamani N Raju who was in-charge of escorting the guests to the dais area had only politely requested Mamata Banerjee to walk a few metres as her car could not pass the traffic jam.

But this infuriated Mamata who humiliated the woman cop in public view at the Vidhan Souda. The video captured of the incident by ANI has gone viral.

In fact Mamata got so disturbed at being asked to walk that she even expressed her displeasure with former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy.

Fifty-seven-year-old Neelamani N Raju is the first woman DG-IGP of Karnataka Police. Regarded as an honest cop who is committed to her duty, she was recently promoted to her current rank.
