Bengaluru: In connection with the Police Sub-Inspectors’ Recruitment exam scam, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President, D. K. Shivakumar on Monday May 2 alleged that minister has the influenced the Crime Investigation Department (CID) probing the case.
Speaking to mediapersons, Shivakumar, “I have no exact details but someone either the Home Minister or some minister has directed the CID officers to release an accused with no further inquiry on him. A minister’s sibling or relatives were also involved in the scam, he alleged.
After Shivakumar indirectly said that there may be involvement of Karnataka IT-BT and Higher Education Minister C. N. Ashwath Narayan, hours later in a press meet in Bengaluru, Narayan hit back, “there was no question of I recommending or helping any person. Shivakumar’s allegations lacked clarity and it is only to tarnish my image.”
However, IT-BT Minister Dr. Ashwath Narayan on hinted at his involvement in the case by DKS said that Congress charges are just assumptions. DKS’ allegations of my sibling, relatives or I being involved in the case is unfounded and baseless, he stressed.
