Probe into pool & gym built at Mysuru deputy commissioner’s home | Mysuru News – Times of India

MYSURU: The Karnataka government on Thursday ordered a probe into the construction of an indoor swimming pool and private gym at Jala Sannidhi, the official residence of Mysuru deputy commissioner Rohini Sindhuri, allegedly in violation of heritage laws.
Revenue secretary Manjunath Prasad has asked Mysuru regional commissioner GC Prakash to submit a report by June 7.
The probe was ordered following complaints from former minister and JD(S) MLA SR Mahesh and Mysuru BJP MP Pratap Simha that the DC’s residence is a heritage property and rules may have been violated in the construction of the pool.
They also accused Rohini of misusing government funds for the construction, amid the pandemic and ongoing fund crunch.

‘Will inspect residence’
“I have sent a letter to the DC, seeking details, including estimation and cost incurred for constructing the swimming pool and gym,” Prakash said. “I will inspect the residence to verify whether any heritage rules have been violated by the Mysuru DC.” Denying the charges, Rohini said, “The work was taken up in January and there was no misuse of funds. There is no violation of any heritage rules or other norms.” A report has been submitted to the government, she added.
