CID begins probe into ADGP case

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Friday began investigations into the allegations that Additional Director Ge­n­­eral of Police P Ravindra­n­a­th had clicked the photographs of a woman at a cof­f­ee shop on his mobile phone.

A team led by CID Deputy Inspector General of Police Soumendu Mukherjee visited the coffee shop on Cunningham Road, where the alleged incident took place on Monday, and questioned its staff. The CCTV cameras at the coffee shop were found to be malfunctioning. Thus, no video recording of the incident is available.

The investigation will pick pace once the police get the forensic science laboratory report on the mobile phone on which Ravindranath had allegedly clicked pictures. “The aim is to complete the probe at the earliest and there is no deadline fixed,” Bipin Gopalakrishna, DGP (CID), said.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (CID) Ravindra Gadadi has been named the investigating officer of the case, orginally registered in the High Grounds police station.

 The Cubbon Park police on Friday registered an FIR against City Police Commissioner Raghavendra H Auradkar, DCP (Central) B R Ravikanthe Gowda and sub-inspector M S Ravi under the provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Prevention of Atrocities Act, 1989, based on the plaint filed by Dr Ravindranath on Thursday evening.
