Complainant implicated in false case

A complainant in two cases filed before the Special Lokayukta Court approached the Court on Saturday, seeking action against some of the accused, claiming they attempted to implicate him in a false crime.

Lakshminarayana, a resident of Hulimavu and ex-councillor, has filed two cases in the Special Lokayukta Court, one against SJR Bui­lders and another against Adichunchungiri Mutt and others, pertaining to land grabbing. He alleged that the main accused in the case, ACP Balaramegowda, filed false cases.

He said pressure was brought on the police by Prakasha­natha Swami of the Mutt and MLA Krishnappa to prevent him from proceeding against the accused. The matter has been adjourned to February 19.
