After his suicide attempt, the police registered a case against Santosh under IPC Section 309 (attempt to commit suicide). Santosh, who was instrumental in bringing Yediyurappa to power, was reportedly losing his place in the state’s political landscape. He was reportedly sidelined following recent successes of Yediurappa’s son Vijayendra in helping the BJP win the recent bypolls.
