pant: Sex-for-job case: Bengaluru top cop, 2 other officers approach HC | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: In a quick turn of events in the sex-for-job case allegedly involving former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, three Bengaluru police officers, including commissioner Kamal Pant, have moved the high court.
P Prasanna Kumar, counsel for the three officers, said the petition will be heard on Thursday.
Besides Pant, MN Anucheth, DCP (central) and Cubbon Park inspector B Maruthi challenged the November 23, 2021 order passed by the VIII Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Bengaluru city.
The magistrate had referred the private complaint filed by social activist Adarsh R Iyer to the station house officer, Cubbon Park police station, for investigation under section 156(3) of CrPC against the three officers after registering an FIR.
Adarsh Iyer had complained that the three officers failed to register an FIR against then minister Jarkiholi, based on a complaint lodged by one Dinesh Kallahalli, and sought for referring his private complaint for investigation and report by Cubbon Park police under section 156(3) of CrPC for alleged offence under section 166A of IPC (public servant disobeying direction under law).
In their petition, Pant and the two officers claimed except stating that the complainant complied with the law laid down by the Supreme Court in the Priyanka Srivastava case, the magistrate mechanically passed the impugned order without even mentioning whether the allegations stated in the private complaint would satisfy the ingredients of a cognizable offence against them.
