Doc meets top cop, says CM's watch not his stolen one

Dr S Sudhakar Shetty, whose premium wrist watches were stolen from his home last year, met Bengaluru Police Commissioner N S Megharikh on Monday and gave the statement that he never owned a Hublot watch similar to the one worn by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. 

The doctor met Megharikh days after former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy suggested that the Hublot watch worn by Siddaramaiah might be Shetty’s. Shetty clarified that he was in no way connected to the Hublot watch and the controversy involving Siddaramaiah and Kumaraswamy. 

He told reporters after the meeting, “Three watches were stolen from my home in April 2015. I had lodged a complaint with the police in May 2015. I had Rolex and Shepherd’s watches but never owned a Hublot. I don’t know why Kumaraswamy dragged me into the controversy. His allegations are totally false and I clarified this before the police commissioner.” 

He also denied having ever spoken to Kumaraswamy about the watch controversy. “Why should I speak to him about a watch that was stolen and a complaint that was lodged last year,” he asked. 

Megharikh confirmed that Shetty recorded a statement on never owning a Hublot watch. He said the hunt for those who stole the watches was going on.
