Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told the Assembly on Wednesday that currently Chikkodi police are investigating the murder of the jain monk. But the case would be handed over to the CID, he told the Assembly.

He further told the Assembly that the police have already arrested two accused Narayan Mali and Hassan Saab with regard to the case and they are in judicial custody.
