Yerriswami had gone to the media on May 3 against the officials demanding money and told them that he has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi complaining against the officials for asking him to pay 40 per cent commission on the public works he had carried out.

According to him, he had supplied materials worth Rs 15 lakh and he had received Rs 4.8 lakh till date while the rest had not been paid.

On April 12, a civil contractor from Belagavi district - Santosh K Patil - allegedly died by suicide in a hotel in Udupi, accusing Eshwarappa of demanding 40 per cent commission on a civil work in his village last year.
