Action against cops caught partying with minister's son

The police top brass  has initiated action against an inspector and sub-inspector, after a photo showing them lifting Sunil Bose, son of PWD Minister Dr H C Mahadevappa, was circulated on social media recently.

While the district police have suspended sub-inspector M Shivanna (left in pic) of T Narsipur pending inquiry, inspector Raghavendra Gowda (right) of the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Chamarajanagar has been transferred.

Mysuru Superintendent of Police Abhinav Khare said assistant SP Divya Sara Thomas submitted an interim report mentioning their objectionable behaviour in public. “The party seems to have been held two months ago and well before a court issued a summons to Bose in a bribery case related to illegal quarrying. The place of the party and the genuineness about the photograph are yet to be ascertained. Police are not barred from attending parties, but one should not behave in an objectionable manner in public. The SI has been suspended to facilitate an unbiased inquiry,” he said.

ACB Superintendent of Police B T Kavitha said, a report had been submitted to higher-ups about Raghavendra Gowda based on reports in the media. “He was relived on Tuesday. He has returned to the head office in Bengaluru,” she said.
