Court accepts 'B' report in case against IPS officer

The ‘B’ report filed by the Lokayukta police with regard to ‘disproportionate’ assets case of IPS officer Hemanth Nimbalkar, has been accepted by the Lokayukta court, on Wednesday.

Nimbalkar was facing allegations of possessing ‘disproportionate’ assets which resulted in Lokayukta raids in early 2009.

He was serving as the Superintendent of Police, Belgaum when raids were conducted on his properties.

However, three years later, the Lokayukta police submitted the ‘B’ report claiming that it was not a “fit” case to be pursued. It was alleged that the officer had earned a total of Rs 25 lakh income since joining service in 1998, but his assets were valued in excess of Rs 76 lakh.

Nimbalkar, who hails from Kolapur in Maharashtra, was believed to have links with politicians and allegedly made investments in several sectors including real estate, besides benami assets.

Ranjitha’s petition

The High Court on Wednesday disposed of the petition by Tamil cine and television artiste Ranjitha Menon seeking directions to the electronic media in the State against telecasting her visuals with Nithyananda.

The matter was disposed of after the National Broadcasting Standard Authority (NBSA) filed a memo stating that it will look into the matter if there are complaints regarding the breach of code of ethics and broadcasting standards.
