'Rao's name figured in Ramaswamy panel report'

To add more trouble to an embattled Lokayukta, the Administrative Reforms Advisory Forum, an NGO, has stated that Justice Y Bhaskar Rao’s name had figured in the A T Ramaswamy Committee Report as one of the beneficiaries of the Judicial Layout sites.

Forum president B H Suresh, in a press release, said that in 2007, the House panel probing the government land-grabbing cases had mentioned about Justice Rao. “It has come to light that Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao had illegally got a site in the Karnataka State Judicial Employees’ House Building Co-operative Society.”

He also accused Upalokayukta S B Majage of illegally acquiring a site in the same layout.
Suresh pointed out that one should not have a site or house in Bengaluru to get a site from house building cooperative societies.
