Bengaluru: Opposition leader Siddaramaiah said on Wednesday May 11 that it as a serious crime if senior IPS Officer Ravindranath was transferred for issuing notice to influential people in a fake caste certificate case.
It was on Tuesday, Ravindranath submitted his resignation. He was shunted out from the Directorate of Civil Rights Enforcement after investigating MP Renukacharya’s daughter for obtaining a fake caste certificate.
Speaking to mediapersons Siddaramaiah said that it was Ravindranath’s duty to investigate those responsible for obtaining fake SC/ST caste certificates. “If he was transferred because he gave influential people notice, then then he was treated unfairly,” he said.
