'Justice Nayak broke rules  to get site'

Janaadhikaara Sangharsha Parishath (JSP), a nonprofit, has submitted additional documents to Governor Vajubhai Vala against Justice S R Nayak, whose name has been recommended for the post of Lokayukta, in connection with the purchase of land. 

The members of JSP met the officials at Raj Bhavan on Sunday and submitted that Justice Nayak bought land in Judicial Layout in violation of rules. 

Earlier, the members of the JSP had filed a complaint alleging that Justice Nayak had purchased assets violating the rules. The complaint was filed before the Lokayukta police two months ago. 

“In our complaint, we had stated that while registering the site in Judicial Layout, Justice Nayak produced false evidence by stating that the BDA had approved the layout plan. The layout plan was not approved by the BDA in respect to Judicial Layout. The false statement was made with the sole intention of ensuring that the registration process was not stopped. Further, we found a recent daily order sheet in a case before the High Court order, which also confirmed that the layout plan was not approved until 2015,” Adarsh R Iyer of the JSP said. The complaint filed by the JSP stated that Nayak’s family owned three sites before the allotment of the site in Judicial Layout in Bengaluru in 2002. According to the complaint, even before the site in Judicial Layout was registered, three properties existed in the name of his wife Shalini S Nayak. 

“We have explained the grave allegations against Justice Nayak and gave a summary of the complaint in writing. It has been taken note of and we have been assured that further enquiries and clarifications will be sought from various departments before any further decision is taken,” Adarsh Iyer added.
