Mysuru: The Police wing of Karnataka Lokayukta began receiving complaints from public in non-corruption cases that have been listed under the Karnataka Lokayukta Act 1984. However, it has no jurisdiction over corruption cases booked under Prevention of Corruption Act as the Anti Corruption Bureau or the ACB will investigate the same.
The Lokayukta Police team accepted complaints this morning from the public at Chamundi Guest House, opposite Junior Maharaja College on the JLB Road. The team is headed by Dy.SP K.B. Swamy and Inspector M. Mahadeva Swamy.
Over 15 people filed their complaints and two of them were related to Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and the rest were from Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) and Revenue Department. The complainants were asked to fill a particular format addressed to the Karnataka Lokayukta and Upa Lokayukta. Once the forms are received, they will be uploaded to the Lokayukta website and the cases will have to be approved by Lokayukta and Upa Lokayukta. Once the green signal is received, the team will call the aggrieved parties to settle the dispute. The team that received complaints from people under Mysuru City jurisdiction today will receive complaints from taluk-level disputes at Mini Vidhana Soudha tomorrow.
