BANGALORE: The High Court on Thursday issued notices to the state government, City Police Commissioner and Bharathinagar police inspector over a petition seeking CBI probe against former cricketer Anil Kumble in a case relating to forgery of signature.

Kumble has been accused of forging his step-daughter’s signature to obtain her passport. Kumar V Jahgirdar, former husband of Chetana, Kumble’s wife, has also sought action against the police for not registering an FIR against Kumble.

Justice Abdul Nazeer issued the notices and posted the case for further hearing.

Jahgirdar, while accusing his former wife and Kumble of forging his daughter’s signature, had stated that the police commissioner and station inspector erred in not initiating action against them.

The police ought to have considered the gravity of the offence committed by the accused and should have immediately initiated necessary action, including arrest.

However, the police have failed to act as per the provisions of law in the matter of investigation, he had contended.
