SIT chief heading Ramesh Jarkiholi's CD case extends leave for one month
Amidst speculation of the case involving ex-Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi's controversial CD case 'under scanner' due to alleged 'political interference', a Special Investigation top police officer is said to have gone on long leave.
Special Investigation Team chief heading ex-Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi's CD case has extended his 'sick' leave by another one month sparking speculations.
Officer Somendu Mukharjee was already on leave for the last 20 days and his leave extension has led to doubt about alleged political interference.
As per the report in Kannada Prabha, it stated that there was 'political interference' and this may have led the officer to distance himself from the case.
However, when asked senior officers about the development, they denied any such interference in connection with the probe, says the media report.
Meanwhile, Ramesh Jarkiholi is making trips to Mumbai and Delhi, has met former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. It is said the leader is making all-out efforts to get back into the state cabinet.
Fadnavis who Jarkiholi now considers as his political 'godfather’ reportedly has promised to help Jarkiholi if he comes out clean from the CD controversy.
Jarkiholi has approached the police accusing the women and two others of extorting him and using 'honey trap'.
