BENGALURU: The government of Karnataka decided on Wednesday to form a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the sex CD scandal allegedly involving former water resources minister Ramesh Jarkiholi.
Home Secretary Basavaraj Bommai said the SIT, which will be headed by ADGP Soumendu Mukherjee, will investigate all aspects of the scandal, including who created and released the CD, in addition to the conspiracy alleged by the former minister. “Once the SIT submits its report, the government will take action. ”
He said the investigation was ordered based on a letter from Jarkiholi in which he claimed a plot behind the release of the CD and the alleged involvement of influential people.
9 people involved, says Balachandra
The Jarkiholi brothers, who claimed the CD was a fake until Tuesday, reportedly decided to probe the issue in hopes of getting a clear note and then reclaiming a place in the cabinet. “They had met BS Yediyurappa on Tuesday and pressured him through certain ministers to order an investigation,” a source said.
Earlier today, KMF chairman Balachandra Jarkiholi, Ramesh’s younger brother, said nine people, including a few influential people, are involved in the CD case. “We are collecting more information through a private agency outside the state so that we can build a strong case against the conspirators. Once we have the details, we will file a complaint. We will mention their names in the complaint, ”he said.
He said he was consulting lawyers on whether a complaint should be filed in Bengaluru, Belagavi or Gokak. “We don’t mind leaving politics, but we will ensure that the conspirators are sent to jail,” Balachandra added.
KPCC chairman DK Shivakumar berated the Jarkiholi brothers and BJP ministers for calling for an investigation. “When you said the CD is bogus, what is the need for an investigation,” he asked, saying the government was free to order an investigation against anyone, including leaders of the Congress.
He rejected the Jarkiholi brothers’ claim that Ramesh was the victim of a conspiracy. “Even if we admit that this is a conspiracy, isn’t it Ramesh’s responsibility to be careful?” Does anyone tell a member six times to be careful? ” he said.
Cooperation Minister ST Somashekhar, who claimed Congress officials were behind the CD’s release, did an about-face and said he was not blaming his former party.
Congress posed a series of questions to Somashekar on his official Twitter account. “You said you were in Congress. How many CDs did you prepare and how much did you spend? Also, tell the people who prepared your CD when you were in quarantine in Mumbai? Why did you take an injunction against the media? ”
