Vendon, five others seek anticipatory bail

BBMP Executive Engineer Idaya Vendon, who was  found running a “parallel office” in the house of Rajarajeshwarinagar MLA Munirathna, has moved an application in the Lokayukta Court seeking anticipatory bail.

Lokayukta police, during a raid on the house had seized 1,000 files from the house.
Five others, including an engineer from Rajarajeshwarinagar division and three contractors, have also moved anticipatory bail applications before the Lokayukta court.

Vendon, Assistant Engineer Vishwas and First Division Clerk Shylaja have filed the anticipatory bail application. Meanwhile, three private contractors Jayaram, Raghavendra and Sudhir have also filed the applications.

“All these six people were named in the FIR registered before conducting the search at the house. They have stated that since the police have registered an FIR, they apprehend arrest,” an official said. The Lokayukta special court has directed the public prosecutor to file objections to the applications on January 12.

The Lokayukta police had searched the house (number 10/1) at 2nd Main Road, Vyalikaval, on December 26. The police had seized hundreds of files pertaining to various works in Rajarajeshwarinagar division. During the raid, the Lokayukta police had found that Vendon was allegedly involved in creating fake bills along with Assistant Engineer Vishwas and First Division Clerk Shylaja.

The Palike is yet to respond to the letter of the Lokayukta police on the details about the house. BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said that a decision on departmental inquiry will be taken after receiving report from Lokayukta.
