jnanendra: Sriki supplied drugs to sons of Congress leaders: Karnataka home minister Araga Jnanendra | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Home minister Araga Jnanendra on Saturday alleged that hacker Sri Krishna alias Sriki, main accused in the bitcoin scam, used to supply drugs to the children of Congress functionaries and they were once spotted with him in Goa.
On the sidelines of Jan Swaraj rally in Kalaburagi, Jnanendra said Sriki was first arrested and released in 2018 when the Congress was in power. “We (BJP government) arrested him again in a drug case and exposed his other crimes. Instead of giving credit to us, the Congress is making wild allegations to save their skin,’’ the home minister claimed, adding probe has been progressing impartially.
Taking a dig at KPCC spokesperson Priyank Kharge, he said: “He was the IT/BT minister in the Congress government then and he would have had all information about the hacker. Why did he (Kharge) not get him arrested then?” Countering the criticism made by former CM HD Kumaraswamy on the Janaswaraj convention, Jnanendra quipped: “No politician can stand before the camera (media) twice a day like him (Kumaraswamy).”
BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel blamed the Congress for making baseless charges against Jnanendra, who is “working hard to ensure law and order in the state”.
