Plaint against HDK in audio clip row
Bengaluru: A complaint has been filed against Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy alleging that the audio clip released about state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa’s alleged bid to destabilise thecoalition government was a “fabricated,created and truncated” one,the party said Sunday.
The complaint has been lodged with the Vidhana Soudha police station under various sections of IPC including 463 (Forgery) and 464 (Making a false document) among others, and the Information Technology Act, state BJP said.
After coming to know of the “plot” hatched by Kumaraswamy and his associates to “tarnish” the reputation of Yeddyurappa and BJP, M B Maramkal (Yeddyurappa’s associate) filed the criminal complaint, it said.
“We hope that the investigating agency would investigate into the matter and press criminal charges against Kumaraswamy and his associates and bring them to justice,” itsaid in a statement.
Facing turmoil in the ruling coalition that has cast a shadow over the stability of his government, Kumaraswamy had on Friday released the audio clip in which Yeddyurappa is purportedly trying to lure JDS MLA Naganagouda through his sonsharana Gouda.
