Just days after a driver made sensational disclosure on the alleged money laundering by former BJP minister, G Janardhana Reddy, police in Karnata has arrested a state government official, allegedly close to the mining baron.
Bheema Nayak, who is a Karnataka administrative service officer was arrested with his current driver Mohammed in Gulbarga on Sunday morning.
In his suicide note, KC Ramesh, the former driver of Nayak had alleged that mining baron and former BJP minister Janardhana Reddy had laundered Rs 100 crores of untaxed money just before his daughter’s five-star wedding last month.
Nayak, according to the suicide note, had allegedly assisted Reddy in his money-laundering for a 20 percent commission.
While millions of Indians may be feeling the pain in the absence of no access to their own hard-earned money because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation announcement, Reddy’s internationally-headlined wedding had caused huge controversy.
According to an estimate, the corruption-tainted former BJP leader had splashed Rs 500 crore on his daughter’s wedding.
Reddy brothers were ministers in the BJP government headed by B. S. Yeddyurappa in Karnataka but had to resign along with the chief minister after all were implicated in mining scam.
The family’s invitation card was sent in a box with LCD screen, that played a welcome song featuring the Reddy family (Watch below).
