sriki: Bengaluru: Hacker Sriki’s bail orders reserved for today | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A local court on Monday reserved its orders on the bail petition filed by alleged hacker Srikrishna Ramesh alias Sriki, 26, for Tuesday. It, however, sent Sriki’s friend Vishnu Bhat to police custody for three days.
Sriki and Bhat were arrested on Saturday night after a brawl in a star hotel in Domlur. Later, they tested positive for consumption of ganja. Police booked them for the brawl as well as under section 27 of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (punishment for consumption of any narcotic drug or psychotropic substance).
Initially, cops sought six days’ custody of Bhat, arguing they had recovered at least 10 cigarettes filled with ganja from his Indiranagar residence and they needed to question him over the source.
“We did not seek custody of Sriki as we did not seize any drugs from him. Accordingly, he applied for bail,” a senior police officer said.
Bhat had visited the hotel on Old Airport Road to see Sriki. He allegedly attacked its staff when they objected to him entering the lobby on the fourth floor without recording his details in the register. Alerted by hotel staff, jurisdictional police from Jeevan Bima Nagar station rushed to the spot.Finding their behaviour strange, cops subjected them to medical test and found them positive for ganja.
Sriki was arrested in November 2020 on drug-peddling charges and then on charges of hacking websites. In January 2021, CID took him into custody for questioning him over his alleged involvement in the case of hacking into the state government’s e-procurement portal. tnn
