HC okays CoD inquiry against KPTCL official

The High Court on Wednesday upheld the government’s decision to conduct a CoD inquiry into the alleged irregularities by K P Champakadhama Swamy, executive director of Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTCL) Employees Co-operative society.

Disposing a petition filed by Swamy, Justice Anandabyrareddy handed over the case to CoD. The court directed CoD to submit the report to the court rather than to the government. On October 28, 2006, the registrar of co-operative societies had found Swamy guilty of the irregularities. In 2007, the High Grounds police had refused to register a complaint against Swamy as it was civil in nature. On February 1, 2008, the government directed the CoD to inquire into the matter.

CBI told to submit records The High Court has directed the CBI to submit the list of documents, statement of witnesses and list of evidences against former minister Krishnaiah Setty, who is facing charges of defrauding State Bank of Mysore (SBM) by availing a housing loan.

While hearing a criminal petition filed by Setty, Justice Subhash B Adi directed the CBI to submit relevant records pertaining to the former minister’s involvement in the cheating case.

Meanwhile, the counsel appearing for SBM submitted that the manager of the Gandhinagar branch of the bank had no powers to sanction housing loans above a limit of Rs 4 lakh.

The court adjourned the hearing to Thursday.

RGUHS asked to announce student’s results The High Court has directed the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science (RGUHS) to announce the results of the final year exams of BDS student Karthikeyan Gokul Chandran, son of a senior IPS officer.

The petitioner told the court that on September 1, the governor had directed RGUHS to conduct re-examination for the petitioner, both in practical and viva, and had asked it to submit a report.

But the university had not announced the results after the exams.

The government had allotted the tender contract to Maverick Holdings Limited to construct the quarters.

However, Akruthi Nirman had challenged the same.
