BANGALORE: A Division Bench of the Karnataka High Court, comprising Justice N Kumar and Justice H S Kempanna, on Friday reserved for Monday its judgment on the review petition filed by DGP Shankar M Bidari, seeking his appointment as DG & IGP be upheld.

Meanwhile, Bidari’s counsel S N Chandrashekar filed a memo seeking permission to withdraw the Interlocutory Application (IA) for change of the Bench. The Bench, then, dismissed the memo and a contempt petition filed by IG & DGP A R Infant against Bidari for “seeking change of Bench” and commenting on judiciary.

Advocate General S Vijay Shankar, who was making his submission on behalf of the state government, said in the National Human Rights Commission report there was no allegation against Bidari of committing atrocities as chief of the STF during operations to nab Veerappan, and hence the state did not feel it relevant to place the report before the UPSC before Bidari’s appointment as IG & DG.

Chandrashekar stated that “During the NHRC prove, victims’ statements were recorded on paper, and not tape-recorded or videographed. Many people gave false statements before the NHRC for higher compensation. When Infant made allegations against Bidari, he should have attached the documents, if any, but he did not do so,” he said.

Counsel for Infant Uday Holla said for empanelment for top post one should have a good length of service, clean service record and range of vital and crucial experience. The DG & IGP had to control and command 90,000 police personnel of the state, but Bidari said he did not commit any atrocities but the officers under him committed them, he added.
