jarkiholi: Sit gives a good word to Ramesh Jarkiholi in the Sex Cd case | Bangalore News

BENGALURU: The Special Investigations Team (SIT), which has been set up to investigate the rape case filed against former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, filed a ‘B’ report in the Metropolitan Supplementary Court on Friday.
Police filed a closure report in the magistrates’ court a day after the Karnataka High Court allowed them to file an investigation report. Police have planned to file B-reports in criminal cases when their investigation finds that the allegations against the suspect are false or there is insufficient evidence to prove the allegations.
The case was filed against Jarkiholi based on a complaint filed by the survivor on March 26, 2021, under ICC Articles 376c (sex by person in authority), 354a (sexual harassment), 504 (intentional insult with intent to cause breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation), 417 (cheating), and section 67a (posting or transmitting material containing a sexually explicit act) of the Information Technology Act information. The survivor had alleged that the suspect lured her on the pretext of getting her a government job and then sexually assaulted her.
MC Kavitha, Deputy Commissioner of Police, had been appointed investigator in the case. IPS agents Soumendu Mukherji, Sandeep Patil and MN Anucheth were part of the SIT. According to sources, the SIT did not find sufficient evidence on the allegations made against Jarkiholi during its investigation. Police officials said they could not provide details of the investigation as the matter is before the court.
Sources said SIT provided victim, suspect and other witness statements with Report B.
The survivor was in hiding after social activist Dinesh Kallahalli filed a complaint with Cubbon Park Police on her behalf. Developments related to the allegations had forced Jarkiholi to resign from the cabinet.
