The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) has registered an FIR against BJP leader R Ashoka over irregularities in land allotment under the Bagair Hukum scheme.

Irregularities had taken place between 1998 and 2006 when Ashoka headed the Bagair Hukum Regularisation and Recommendation Committee in Bengaluru South taluk. ACB officials on Tuesday arrested a few revenue officials in this connection.

The arrested are the then tahsildar of Bengaluru South taluk Ramachandraiah; revenue inspector of Hemmigepura Circle Gavi Gowda; revenue inspector of Nelaguli Circle Chowda Reddy and village accountant of Agara village Shashidhar. The suspects were produced before the magistrate and are in police custody.

The FIR, registered on Monday, also names a few other government officials. KPCC member M A Saleem had filed a complaint with the ACB. The complainant had submitted a report by the Bengaluru Urban district administration over the irregularities in the allotment of land. The complaint says only landless farm labourers were entitled to get land. However, Ashoka allocated land to several of his family members, former corporators and BJP workers.
