Mysuru:  In a pre-dawn swoop today, sleuths from the Anti Corruption Bureau raided the house of a Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) Junior Engineer at Belavatha and recovered properties that are disproportionate to his known sources of income. Along with the raid on his house, the officer’s sister’s place in Hunsur was also raided.

The raid that took place at 5.30 am was a part of a State-wide operation launched by the ACB this morning at 17 places, targeting five government officers.

The officer whose house was raided in Mysuru is K. Mani who is a Junior Engineer at MUDA (5-A Zone).

The corruption case against Mani (Crime Number 8/18) was registered six months ago in Chamarajanagar where he served as an engineer in Public Works Department. He was transferred to MUDA six months back. The FIR was filed in Chamarajanagar.

ACB sources said that along with Mani’s three-floor house built on a 30X50 plot at Belavatha near the Ring Road, one more team headed to Hunsur to simultaneously raid the house owned by Amrutha, Mani’s wife Vasantha’s sister and her husband Nataraj at Kalkunike near Hunsur. Nataraj owns Sapthagiri Floor Mill and a coconut oil extraction unit at Kalkunike.

The ACB sources said that Mani’s wife owned a petrol pump at Maartalli village in Chamarajanagar district.

It may be mentioned here that the recent incident where the prasadam of Kichuguth  Sulwadi Maramma Temple was poisoned and where 17 persons lost their lives is located at Maartalli village.

Several people had petitioned to the ACB against Mani when he was the PWD engineer in Chamarajanagar. The raids continued when we went to the Press. Sources said that after the raids on his houses, ACB sleuths are likely to visit MUDA office, searching for documents.

The raid was supervised by ACB Superintendent of Police Dr. H.T. Shekar. While Dy.SP J. Mohan and team raided Mani’s house, Dy.SP Poornachandra Tejaswi led the raids in Hunsur. Inspector Suresh Kumar, G.N. Srikanth and staff Mallikarjun, Aradhya, Mahadevaswamy, Satish, Nagalakshmi, Krishnakumar, Venkatesh and Kumar participated in the raids.
