Lokayukta employee gets bail in bribery case

The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday granted bail to Sunkanna, a judgement writer at the Additional Registrar of Enquiries - 1 in the Lokayukta office. Sunkanna was arrested for taking a bribe of Rs 25,000 from a constable for not raking up an old corruption case against him.

The constable was attached to the APMC police station in Ballari.

Sunkanna is said to have asked Sudhakar, a colleague of the constable, to demand bribe for not taking up the Lokayukta proceedings against the constable. The constable wrote a letter to the Lokayukta about the demand for bribe by the judgement writer through Sudhakar. Justice Rathnakala granted conditional bail to Sunkanna as he has been in custody for more than 50 days.

As the investigation in the case is nearly completed and since Sudhakar has also been granted bail, the judge granted bail to Sunkanna.
