Sex for job scandal: Cops say Dinesh Kallahalli can’t withdraw complaint against Ramesh Jarkiholi now | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Cubbon Park police on Monday made it clear that they cannot allow activist Dinesh Kallahalli to withdraw his complaint against then water resources minister Ramesh Jarkiholi through an advocate and that the inquiry must continue.
Kallahalli had accused Jarkiholi of sexually exploiting a woman in return for a government job.
On March 2, Kallahalli had petitioned police, but on Sunday his advocate Kumar Patil presented a five-page application, wherein the complainant said he was disappointed by the statements of some politicians and treating the victim and her messenger as criminals.
Police said Kallahalli must appear in person and discuss the issue with them. “Withdrawing the petition in such a serious matter is not a child’s play. We have to continue with the probe and Kallahalli must cooperate with us,” an officer said.
Meanwhile, senior officers said they have asked activist Rajashekhar Mulali to appear before them. Mulali had in a presser last week claimed that there were similar sex CDs of 19 other politicians. However, Mulali did not turn up.
Mulali told TOI that he has sought time to appear before police. “Police seem to be under pressure. I’m contesting the elections of the Kannada Sahitya Parishath as the state president and travelling across the state for campaigning. I’ll appear for questioning after 10 days,” he said.
