Karnataka bribery case

Days after unaccounted cash was seized from his office, Karnataka BJP MLA Madal Virupakshappa’s son Prashanth Madal was, Friday, named in two new FIRs registered by the Lokayukta police in the bribery case.

Prashanth Madal was arrested by the Lokayukta police from the Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited (KSDL) office on March 2 after he was allegedly caught taking a bribe of Rs 40 lakh from a contractor. Prasanth Madal is the chief accounts officer of the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board.

An official said that Prashanth Madal was caught red-handed by Lokayukta officials while accepting a bribe of Rs 40 lakh at his office. He said that Lokayukta officials received a complaint against Prashanth accusing him of taking bribes.

Accordingly, the Lokayukta officials laid a trap and caught Prashanth red-handed when he was accepting a bribe of Rs 40 lakh.

His arrest led to further searches in which Rs 8.23 crore in unaccounted currency were recovered from the BJP MLA’s home and the KSDL office, following which Virupakshappa stepped down as KSDL chairman.

The tainted BJP leader is accused of collecting bribes through his son from contractors supplying raw materials for KSDL.

The police in the fresh FIRs, registered under the Prevention of Corruption Act, have named Prashanth as the prime accused, while his MLA father—who after the seizure told reporters that a simple arecanut farmer in his district has Rs 5-6 crore at home—has been named as the second accused in the bribery case.

Virupakshappa, had received anticipatory bail in the corruption case on Tuesday.

In a statement, BJP MLA CT Ravi said that the BJP has “zero tolerance” for corruption and it was only because of the saffron party that the Lokayukta raids happened in the first place while the Siddaramaiah government gave clean chit to everyone. He assured that the BJP will also take required action against Virupakshappa.
