Bengaluru: A lower court has ordered the Mahadevapura police to register a First Information Report (FIR) against a police inspector and a builder.
The order came from the 43rd Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) on a petition that builder Kundala Rao and Inspector Srinivas had created forged documents, issued life threats to the complainant and cheated him. Inspector Srinivas earlier served at the Mahadevapura police station. The victim, Khalleemulla, was allotted a site at Doddanekkundi by the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) on August 20, 1971. But, it is alleged, the accused created documents to show that Khaleemulla had sold the property to Kundala Rao, Venkataraman Reddy, Ranjith Priya, Nadeer Mestri and Gavsishwara Rao.
Srinivas, who was the inspector at Mahadevapura police station at that time, was approached by Khaleemulla to file a complaint against the accused. But Srinivas refused to register the complaint, and instead, registered an FIR against Khaleemulla. Though Khaleemulla approached Srinivas’ higher-ups, the inspector did not care, Khaleemulla states.
Also, the builders issued life threats to Khaleemulla for approaching the police. Khaleemulla then approached the court seeking justice. After admitting the case, the court had asked the Mahadevapura police to file the complaint and investigate the matter.
