BANGALORE : Former JD (S) MLA A T Ramaswamy has urged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to conduct an inquiry on allegations of land grabbing by former police commissioner of Bangalore, H T Sangliana.

In a letter to Siddaramaiah, Ramaswamy, who had headed the joint legislature committee on encroachment of government land, stated that Sangliana, a former MP, had mentioned owning the land in his affidavit filed during the 2004 Lok Sabha elections. He said, “Truth will come out if a thorough inquiry is conducted into the alleged land grabbing.”

He further stated that the former MP had even misled the High Court. Ramaswamy alleged that Sangliana had called him and attempted to intimidate him after the scam surfaced.

He had recently alleged that Sangliana and his family members had acquired gomala land near Javevahalli in Jala hobli of Bangalore North taluk by forging documents. 

‘Politically Motivated’

Rubbishing the allegations, Sangliana said, “The allegations are baseless and appear to be politically motivated as I had rejected the invitation to join JD(S) during the last elections.”
