BENGALURU: Nearly a week after the Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) registered FIRs, the 20 tainted officials who issued building plans to construct on raja kaluves are still missing.

ADGP T. Suneel Kumar said that all officials are on the run and have also switched off their mobile phones, fearing that the police would identify their locations.

 

Four officials approached the Karnataka High Court on Wednesday seeking relief against the complaints registered against them. But the court has directed them to appear before the investigating officer at 10.30 am on Thursday.

They have been warned that if they fail to appear, the police are at liberty to arrest them. Gangappha, Sunitha and Liyakath are among the four who approached the court, he said. Some of them have holed up in Delhi, while others are absconding. Notices are being served to their residential addresses.
