BANGALORE: A fresh complaint was filed in the Lokayukta Court on Friday against DGP (CID and Economic Offence, Bangalore) R K Datta on Friday over charges of violating All-India Service rules by not getting prior permission from the government for pursuing his LLB course.

The complaint lodged by a social activist from Mysore, Mallesh, states that Dutta, despite being a member of All-India Service, has failed to obtain permission from the government for enrolling in a three-year law course despite being bound to do so.

Datta is pursuing a three-year regular LLB degree course from June 2009 and has taken  admission at Arunodaya Institute of Legal Studies, Bangalore, for the same. Counsel for the complainant argued that Datta had manipulated records to enable him to take the examination for the first and second semesters for the academic year 2009-10 and obtained a false certificate of attendance .

“This is a clear violation of departmental rules, procedures and code of conduct and amounts to criminal breach of trust, criminal misconduct and cheating,” Mallesh added.

Lokayukta Judge N K Sudhindra Rao adjourned the cases for further hearing till April 18.
