The Karnataka Minister came under the scanner after the I-T department was informed of unexplained cash deposits in accounts of his family and benami deposits in primary cooperative societies. The minister’s has also come under the scanner.

I-T officials from Goa, Bengaluru and Hubballi conducted the raids on Jarkiholi, his younger brother Lakhan L Jarkiholi, the minister’s trusted aides Hussainsab Mulla and Ali Atthar’s houses in Belagavi and Gokak. In Hebbalkar’s case, her house in upscale Kuvempunagar in Belagavi, two sisters’ residences in Hanuman Nagar and the Harsha sugar factory owned by her were also raided.



  1. It is shame to live such corrupt people in kannadigar’s state. Jarkeholi families are Gundas of Belgaum. They have looted poor people. They have owned eveything industries, sand mafias, liqour, sugar factories. Anyone speaks against them , they will kill them. This is hurtful to poor people of Belgaum region. We should boycott them.
