No trace of steno caught with Rs 28L at Soudha

A stenographer, who was caught carrying 25.76 lakh in a bag at one of the exits of the Vidhana Soudha on January 4, has failed to appear before the investigating officer despite being summoned for questioning. 

Mohan, who works in the office of Backward Classes Welfare Minister K Puttarangashetty, was detained by the police at the Vidhana Soudha west gate and had failed to produce documents to show the source of the money. 

The investigating officer summoned Mohan for questioning at 11 am, Sunday, and waited until 2 pm but neither did the latter turn up nor return phone calls. Police personnel were later sent to his house to summon him for questioning on Monday and to warn him of action if he fails to do that, a senior officer said. 

Police are also checking his call detail record of the past few weeks to find out his callers.
