Marigowda moves HC for advance bail

Ex-president of Mysuru Zilla Panchyat K Marigowda has approached the High Court seeking an anticipatory bail in the case filed by Mysuru Deputy Commissioner C Shikha.

Marigowda, a close confidant of Chief Minister Siddaramiah, in his petition has stated that there is no substance in the complaint registered by Shikha against him.

The petitioner has stated that complaint was lodged to curb his political career. Shikha had lodged a complaint against Marigowda for obstructing her from discharging her duty and intimidating her.

Justice K N Phaneendra adjourned the hearing to next week, directing the state government to file its objections.
