Bengaluru: A Rajya Vokkaligara Sangha official is accused of defrauding a contractor of Rs. 35 lakh by promising a medical seat at the Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences. Shrinivas K. R., a resident of Hanunantha Nagar, filed a complaint to the High Grounds police claiming that the son of a relative was unable to obtain a medical seat through NEET.

He approached Manjegowda M. B., an office-bearer of the sangha, with whom he had an acquaintance. Manjegowda claimed to have a good relationship with the sangha’s President and would assist in getting a medical seat. He allegedly asked for Rs. 35 lakh. The complainant stated that on March 7, at a five-star hotel in Vasanth Nagar, he gave the money to Manjegowda and his wife.

According to the complainant, he had invited him to the President’s chamber three days later. When he arrived, Manjegowda asked him to come after a week. When he learned that the admissions process was complete, he tried to contact Manjegowda but was unavailable.

“I went to his residence in Mysuru where Manjegowda, his wife Meena, and one of his friends hurled filthy abuses and threatened me,” the complainant stated.

Manjegowda, Meena, and others have been booked for cheating, criminal intimidation, and other charges. Manjegowda has been summoned to appear for questioning, informed the police.
