Bengaluru: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has given Yathindra, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s son, a clean chit in the case where a firm formerly co-owned by him was awarded the tender to start a diagnostic lab on the premises of Victoria Hospital in the city. The complainant in the case, S. Bhaskaran, alleged that the ACB has not conducted a fair probe.

This was the case that brought Dr. Yathindra to the limelight for the first time in April 2016. Matrix Imaging Solutions India Pvt. Ltd., a private firm then co-owned by Dr. Yathindra, had bagged the contract to open a diagnostic lab at Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) Hospital. Allegations of impropriety and conflict of interest were made when it was revealed that only Matrix Imaging Solutions participated in the tender after another bidder was disqualified. Following the allegations, Dr. Yathindra quit the company.

A senior ACB official said an impartial probe was conducted into the case and no lapses in procedure were found.
