Missing items from ATI Guest House take a curious turn 

December 8, 2022

Four letters sent to Mysuru DC seeking info; now even the earlier three letters are missing!

Mysore/Mysuru: The weird case of missing items from the Administrative Training Institute (ATI) Guest House on Lalitha Mahal Road after an IAS Officer’s brief stay took a new turn this morning with a revelation that three letters were already sent to the Mysuru Deputy Commissioner (DC) seeking information about the items. The letter that was sent on  Nov. 30 was the fourth one.

The fourth letter, dated 30.11.2022, was sent by S. Poovitha, Joint Director, ATI, to the present Mysuru DC Dr. K.V. Rajendra based on the direction from the Director General of ATI. The letter stated that the earlier DC of Mysuru, Rohini Sindhuri Dasari, had stayed in the Guest House of the ATI from Oct. 2 to Nov. 14, 2020.

“When the Officer vacated the Guest House on 14.11.2020, over 20 items of various types that were earlier part of the Guest House rooms were found missing,” the letter stated.

Seeking clarity on the issue, Star of Mysore contacted Deputy Commissioner Dr. Rajendra this morning, who said that he has received the letter from the ATI Joint Director. “I am in receipt of the letter (the fourth one) but will have to see what follow-up action has to be taken. The DC’s Official Residence on Hunsur Road does not have an inventory to verify the items entering and exiting the premises,” he said.

He said that the items listed in the letter will have to be matched with the furniture and things at the DC’s Residence and action will be taken accordingly. “If the items are there, we will return it to the ATI and if not, we will communicate the same,” he added.

When asked about the earlier three letters and the replies that were sent to the ATI, DC Dr. Rajendra said he was not aware of the earlier three letters sent to the Mysuru DC as he took charge in October this year.

Dr. Bagadi Gautham, who took over as the DC soon after the transfer of Rohini Sindhuri, told SOM that he was not aware of the three letters sent by the ATI regarding the 20 missing items from the ATI Guest House.

“I have no idea regarding this and I do not know if there is a file maintained on the issue.                        This has not come to my notice and I only read about the same in the media. It has already been two years and I do not know why the issue is being raked up now,” he clarified.

    What an idiotic DC he was! 2 years lapse due to letters sent and waiting does not mean that the matter should be dropped. These IAS officers have a sense of entitlement in that any items that belong to an official residence /guest house where they stay is theirs!
    There is already a ;police enquiry on the conduct of Rohini Sindhuri and her husband Reddy, for their attempt to usurp a property by late actor Mahmood’s son Ali, who complained to the police in Bangalore, the news which appeared on December 6 SOM.
    Mr Ali should have consulted a lawyer and should have applied to the Karnataka High Court for an injunction preventing Sindhri and her husband attempting to acquire his property in Yelahanka. That would have resulted in opurt notices sent to both, any violation would be deemed as a contempt of court.
    These items in questions which allegedly carted away by Sindhuri, would have been long gone-she is not that dumb to keep them in her residence!
    Indian officials visiting Western countries-there are many these days as perks, who stay in class hotels, are known to take with them the bathroom towels, shower gels and soaps which are of good quality. , when they check out of these hotels.
    Why blame corrupt politicians in India, when Indian officials are equally corrupt?
