Karnataka top police official transferred for alleged misuse of staff

Bengaluru (PTI): A senior police official has been transferred by Karnataka government after a video purportedly showing staff under him being used for cleaning a community hall owned by him surfaced.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah ordered the transfer of DIG Railways H S Venkatesh as the video surfaced showing police personnel under him being used for cleaning of a community hall, official sources said today.

They said the Chief Minister himself questioned about the incident in a meeting with top police officials yesterday and sought a report from them.

Venkatesh has not been given any posting.
The video has come as an embarrassment to the government which is bracing itself to deal with the threat by the constabulary to go on a mass leave on June 4, against alleged harassment of lower rank police personnel by senior officials, lesser pay and other issues.
The visuals showed police personnel in uniform sweeping and mopping the community hall, owned by Venkatesh.

The video was reportedly shot by constables used for the work ahead the inauguration of the community hall in April.
