ACB clean chit to CM in Hublot watch case

The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) has given a clean chit to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in connection with the Hublot watch case.

The officials said Dr Girish Chandra, a doctor based in Dubai and friend of Siddaramaiah, gave his statement before the ACB that he had gifted the expensive watch to the chief minister. A detailed investigation was carried out and it was found that the watch was a gift from his friend and a clean chit has been awarded to Siddaramaiah, they added.

Social activist Natraj Sharma had written a complaint to governor, which was rejected. Later, Sharma along with T J Abraham, a lawyer and Ramamurthy Gowda, an RTI activist, filed a complaint against Siddaramaiah before the ACB, for owning an expensive watch.
