BANGALORE: The High Court on Thursday castigated Kodigehalli Inspector Punith Kumar and ASI Chikka Marigowda for “involving in court matters”.
In a petition, which came up for hearing before Justice Abdul Nazeer, one Kanchana had stated that she was staying on a plot purchased from Krishamurthi, but he had sold the same plot to one Saroja Bai later.
Saroja Bai filed a complaint against Kanchana, the petitioner said.
She contented that the Kodigehalli police filed an FIR against her and her family members, who then moved a lower court against the FIR. The court had directed the police to maintain status quo. Kanchana said the police, meanwhile, took her father to the police station and beat him up. They had also cut down the power line to their house, she said.
Justice Abdul Nazeer asked Punith Kumar, who was present in court, why did the police intervene in the matter when the lower court had ordered status quo.
Stating that these things were done by the rowdies, the judge asked him, “Are you a don to do these things?”
The judge then asked him who posted him to Bangalore, and said if he continued the same the court would direct his transfer to Gulbarga. At this point, the additional advocate general said they would conduct an inquiry and file objections.
Justice Nazeer adjourned the case till Friday.
