BENGALURU: After the transfer of senior IPS officer Hemant Nimbalkar, who was supervising the case of ISIS sympathiser Mehdi Masood Biswas, the government is shunting out Lokayukta SP Mahesh, who recently raided Congress MLA Munirathna Naidu’s house.

During the raid, Lokayukta sleuths had recovered files relating to BBMP works in Rajarajeshwari Nagar Assembly segment.

Lokayukta police also found a BBMP executive engineer and three contractors in possession of these files at Naidu’s home at Vyalikaval in Malleshwaram. The incident rocked the proceedings of the BBMP for two days, when the ruling BJP had sought a CBI inquiry into the incident.

Mahesh had also headed the raid on KAS officer Rajamma at her BDA office, where she was serving as secretary, and at her house. She was later arrested.

These raids are said to have earned Mahesh the wrath of the government. A sources said, “The government refrained from issuing the transfer order to Mahesh on Wednesday as it happened to be the eve of Lokayukta Day.”

Lokayukta Y Bhaskar Rao said he is not aware of the government’s plan on SP’s transfer. However, sources said while an official is expected to remain in office for a minimum term of one year, generally nobody is disturbed before completing two years.

Mahesh has completed 18 months in the present posting.
