BENGALURU: The credibility of P N Krishna Murthy, on whose complaint the Lokayukta SIT arrested Ashwin, Syed Riyaz, Sadique, Bhaskar, Narasimha Rao, Rajashekar, has been questioned by the counsel for Bhaskar and two others.

During the argument on the bail petition of Sadique Basha on Friday, his counsel Dheena Bandhu Rai told the Lokayukta Special Court that Krishna Murthy had filed a complaint with the Peenya police on February 18 claiming he was cheated of Rs 6 crore by a gang that had claimed to have ‘rice pulling’ metal.

According to the complaint, Krishna Murthy has accepted that he had paid the gang the money in several installments of which Rs 15 lakh was paid through hawala, the counsel said.

He also submitted a copy of the police complaint to the court and asked how the SIT could rely on such a person’s claims against his client. Rai also appealed to the court to allow the bail petition.

The special public prosecutor appealed that the court dismiss the bail plea. Further hearing will be held on September 2. 

Rs 36,000 Currency in Bhaskar’s Mobile
