No action against Anil Kumble; Karnataka HC summons cops

Anil Kumble
Bangalore, Feb 25: The Karnataka High Court has asked the Bharathinagar Police Inspector to be present in court on Feb 28 to explain as to why an FIR has not been registered against former cricketer Anil Kumble for allegedly forging his signature to obtain passport for his stepdaughter.

Justice Abdul Nazeer gave the direction while hearing a writ petition filed last month by Kumar Jagirdar, ex-husband of Kumble's wife Chetana, asking a direction to police to file an FIR against Kumble.

The petition claimed that the police has not registered an FIR on his complaint lodged on Dec 26, 2011.

According to the petition filed by Jagirdar, Kumble impersonated his wife's ex-husband though his name has been mentioned as father in the passport with devised signature to mislead the passport authorities.

Moreover, the complaint claimed that despite a Supreme Court judgement, which gave joint guardianship of his daughter in the year 2004, Kumble and Chetana went ahead to apply for a passport with a forged signature. Meanwhile, Aaruni, born to Chetana and Jagirdar, lives with her mother and Kumble.
