In the latest update in the IPS woman officer D Roopa allegedly impersonating the state Home Secretary, BJP National General Secretary CT Ravi reacted on the case and said there is a need to investigate some of the points raised.

IPS officer Hemant Nimbalkar and Karnataka Home Secretary D Roopa have been in a cold war as the former on Sunday said that the tender process in the multi-crore Bengaluru Safe City Project was not biased amid allegations of irregularities in the tender process. Karnataka Home Secretary D Roopa on Saturday had alleged that there were irregularities in the tender called for the project, particularly that Hemant Nimbalkar was trying to favour a private company.

CT Ravi on Monday said, “I will not get into the details of it. But there is a need to investigate some of the points raised in the case.”

According to a report on The News Minute, Roopa has written a letter dated December 26 to state Chief Secretary Vijaya Bhaskar alleging that fellow IPS officer Hemanth Nimbalkar has made a false and motivated complaint against her.

She has further demanded a probe against Nimbalkar, alleging in turn that he was trying to favour a private company in the Bengaluru Safe City Project.

On Friday, Times of India published a report that an unnamed IPS officer had impersonated the Home Secretary to get confidential information about the project from a private auditor tasked with drawing up the tender documents for the project. The content of the report is on the lines of a complaint written by IPS officer Hemant Nimbalkar, Additional Commissioner of Police (Administration) to the Karnataka Chief Secretary on December 7.
