first_imgNews UpdatesKarnataka High Court Seeks Report On FIR Against Alleged Corruption In BBMP’s Bed Allocation Mustafa Plumber5 May 2021 8:56 PMShare This – xImage Courtesy: T. Narayan/BloombergThe Karnataka High Court on Wednesday orally directed the State government to by next week submit a report of the Investigating officer probing the case regarding alleged corruption and malpractice in allocating beds through the BBMP’s centralised bed allocation system for COVID patients. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar orally directed the State government to produce in a sealed envelope the investigation report. It said “There is some FIR registered in regards to allocation of beds in Bengaluru. We would like to have the report of the investigating officer.” Advocate General Prabhuling K Navadgi said the FIR is being investigated by the CCB and the report would be submitted to the court. The police started the investigation following an allegation by BJP Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya. The police have till now arrested four persons in the case. Surya had claimed that bribes are being taken to allocate Covid beds. He also stated that a nexus of BBMP officers, Arogya Mitras and certain private agents is behind this scam. This had led to an artificial shortage of beds in the city. The direction was issued after Advocate G R Mohan brought to the notice of the court about the FIR being registered and investigated by the police.TagsKarnataka High Court BBMP Karnataka Government Next Storylast_img read more
