Mysuru, December 27:- “Acquitting the accused in the Rs 2.27 crore Yelawal money seizure case is a welcome move, but the real culprits must be identified,” said journalist Snehamayi Krishna at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Wednesday.
“Junior officials were made to suffer as the case of money seizure from the Kerala State Transport bus was constructed on lies. The court’s order to probe the complainants and the subsequent acquittal of the accused is a welcome move. Informer Salim, Sharif, Police Sub-Inspector Jagadish, police constables Satish, Latif, Ashok, Ravi, Manohar, IGP’s gunman Prakash have been acquitted in the case,” he said.
“The court has ordered to investigate political advisor to Chief Minister Kempaiah, the then Mysuru district Superintendent of Police Abhinav Khare and Deputy SP Srihari Baraguru. Police have recovered huge amount of money from a Kerala State Transport bus and registered FIR as the seized only Rs 20 lakh. The Kerala businessman wrote letters to Kerala chief minister and the home minister. The government later ordered for a CID probe. CID has failed to gather any information against the accused and now they have been released,” he said.
Advocate G R Nagendra and Siddaraju were present at the press meet.
