Shobha Karandlaje to Kerala govt: Rashmi Mahesh is missing, trace her

Accusing the government of harassing IAS and IPS for merely telling the truth.

Bengaluru: BJP Member of Parliament, Shobha Karandlaje claimed on Tuesday that senior IAS officer, Rashmi Mahesh had been missing for 10 months and demanded that the state government trace her immediately.

Speaking to reporters here, Ms Karandlaje recalled that Ms Mahesh was transferred to the Sakala mission after she came across a scam as Divisional Commissioner of Mysuru. "And now she is not available. I have been trying to contact her without any success. I request the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to trace her,” she added.

Accusing the government of harassing IAS and IPS for merely telling the truth, the BJP leader alleged that some of the officers had died mysteriously after digging up scams. “IAS officer, Vijaykumar was forced to take voluntary retirement, KAS officer, Mathai has been transferred over 15 times in six months for unearthing scams, IPS officer, Anoop Shetty was harassed and transferred for taking action against illegal mining , a case has been filed against retired DIG, Sathayanaraya for telling the truth and another IPS officer, Roopa is being punished,” she charged.

Ms Karandlaje also claimed that IPS officers were not able to discharge their duties in the state due to the interference of the Home Minister’s advisor, Kempaiah.

“And while Cubbon Park police inspector, Vijay Hadagali, was suspended for not taking action against MLA N.A. Harris’s son, Mohammed Nalapad for attacking a diner, Vidwat in a restaurant, no action has been taken against Mr. Harris for bringing pressure on the inspector not to file a complaint against his son,” she deplored. Responding to a question, the MP defended her party’s decision to field Mr Rajeev Chandrashekar for the Rajya Sabha election and claimed it could not be seen as a setback for state BJP chief B.S. Yeddyurappa.
