Bengaluru: A man has been arrested for posing as BJP MLA L. Nagendra so as to influence the transfer of a driver-cum-conductor in the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC).
The accused has been identified as Punith (30) of Malavalli in Mandya District. He called the KSRTC Managing Director V. Anbukumar as Chamaraj MLA and said that he was MLA Nagendra, and asked him to consider the transfer of Balaraj, a driver-cum-conductor from Mandya Depot to Malavalli Depot as he had family issues.
On the direction of the MD, the Divisional Controller of Mandya Division called Nagendra to get some details and found that he had not called Anbukumar.
In this regard, Balaraj was summoned and questioned. He confessed that Puntith, who is said to be working at the KSRTC Central Office, helped him in getting the transfer.
Taking note of the matter, Security and Vigilance Department immediately acted upon and collected preliminary evidence. KSRTC has registered a case.
