Bengaluru, Apr 26: Alleging illegal de-notification of 1.37 acres of land in Rachenahalli, a complaint in the newly carved Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has been filed against Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday.
The complaint was filed by a High Court advocate Nataraj Sharma seeking filing of FIR. However complaint has also been filed against BDA (Bengaluru Development Authority), Chairman, Shyam Bhat and Land Acquisition Officer of the BDA Boraiah.
Nataraj Sharma speaking to OneIndia alleged that land measuring up to 1.37 acres has been illegally de-notified by BDA chairman after CM Siddaramaiah gave clearance for the same. The land belonging to Survey Number, 83/1 of Rachenahalli was the de-notified land after accepting the application from a person named Krishna.
Sharma also alleged that BDA chairman Shyam Bhat along with Boraiah forged documents pertaining to this, besides changing received date of application. For a application dated in the year 2014, the chairman has changed the receiving year to 2013.
Along side, another document shows that measuring or spot survey of the land after filing application to de-notify the land was done in 2012. It clearly indicates that dates have been deliberately changed.
Sharma further said that a former BDA Chairman Vijay Bhaskar was transferred under suspicious cloud. The officer rejected to de-notify this land as the land is mired in Arkvathy case. Vijay Bhaskar was replaced by Shyam Bhat who is now facing the allegation. However Siddaramaiah during the time of de-notification was holding portfolio of BDA Ministry, he added.
