NEW DELHI: The sudden death of singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, is turning into a political battle with a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament Thursday writing to Union home minister Amit Shah demanding a probe by central agencies.
MP from Bengal’s Bishnupur constituency Soumitra Khan also raised the question if it’s a conspiracy to deviate attention from the state’s ongoing SSC scam and other pressing issues.
Talking to The New Indian, Khan said, “This is unfortunate that KK succumbed to death after the concert. I have a few basic questions, Nazrul Mancha has the capacity to accommodate 2400, how can 7000 people enter there? If they had to do it in a grand manner and on such a big scale why Indoor stadium was not used? Why there is no FIR against the organizers? The electrical executive engineer or the civil executive engineer should be arrested immediately.”
Hinting at a bigger conspiracy, Khan said, “His (KK’s) death can also be a part of a bigger conspiracy to change media’s focus from ongoing state issues such as SSC scam and all. I have written to the Union home minister demanding for a probe by the central agency.”
Khan accused that TMC did not allow anybody from the opposition to be present while the government paid the last tribute to KK at Bengal’s cultural hub Rabindra Sadan.
New Market Police station took Suo moto cognizance of the unnatural death of the KK, 53 in Kolkata’s Nazrul Mancha on Tuesday.
People who were on stage stated that KK complained of being uncomfortable and uneasy. He complained of the heat and later requested to switch off the spotlight.
Sources said that the preliminary report says KK suffered cardiac arrest. The complete autopsy report will be published in 72 hours.
