No time limit set for probing Comed-K scam: Minister

The government has not set any time limit for the police to complete the investigation into impersonation cases during Comed-K under graduate entrance test recently.

“Law will take its own course,” Home Minister K J George told reporters after flagging off new Hoysala patrol vehicles at the Vidhana Soudha on Wednesday.

Currently, two investigative agencies - CID and CCB - are conducting separate probes. The CID is probing the earlier cases, while the CCB is investigating the latest one.

The government will not intervene in the investigation. There is no question of clubbing both investigations, he added.

“The government would expect both the agencies to submit separate reports. We will compare, analyse and take a call on the nature of action to be taken against those responsible,” he said.

He said it was too early to comment if high profile politicians and personalities were involved in the scandal. “We still don’t know if any university or institute of higher learning is involved. The probe will ascertain all such things,” he said.

New Hoysala vehicles

Earlier, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah flagged off 57 Hoysala patrol vehicles.
Till date, the government had provided 123 Hoysala patrol vehicles to 103 police stations in City. With the inclusion of 57 vehicles, the number has gone up to 180, Police Commissioner Raghavendra Auradkar said. The government has spent Rs 5 crore to buy 45 Maruti Eeco vehicles and 68 Mahindra Boleros.

Maruti Eeco vehicles would be given to officers holding the rank of Assistant Commissioners of Police. Fifty-seven Mahindra Boleros would be given for the patrol squad, while the remaining 11 would replace those given to police inspectors which are in an extremely bad state, he said.
