Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai has written to Bengaluru city police commissioner Kamal Pant, directing him to appoint IPS officer, IGP Soumendu Mukherjee, as the SIT in-charge to probe the Sex CD of Ramesh Jarkhiholi.
Earlier, Ramesh Jarkiholi had spoken with Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and the Home Minister and had demanded an investigation into the matter. The CM had directed Bommai to take a call on the issue. Speaking to the media earlier on Wednesday, Yediyurappa had said the Home Minister would take a suitable decision, reports the Bengalurulive.
