CID rec­om­mends state govt to form mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee for BTC

Evening Today - - BENGALURU -

Bengaluru: The CID, which is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case of drug­ging of horse Queen Lat­ifa, rec­om­mended the state gov­ern­ment to form a mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee to over­see the day to day func­tions of the Bengaluru Turf Club (BTC). In its rec­om­men­da­tion to the state gov­ern­ment based on its in­ves­ti­ga­tion nd­ings, the CID left the for­ma­tion of the com­mit­tee, mem­bers, pow­ers, and du­ties of the mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee to the dis­cre­tion of the state gov­ern­ment. The state gov­ern­ment, ear­lier this year handed over horse Queen Lat­ifa drug­ging in­ci­dent to the CID in­ves­ti­ga­tion as it was al­leged that horses are drugged to im­prove their per­for­mance. It was al­leged that Queen Lat­ifa was drugged in March 2017 races.

Ac­cord­ing to the CID sources, even though this prac­tice was fol­lowed in the BTC for a long time and few mem­bers had raised voice, no in­quiry was made. “No po­lice com­plaint was lodged. So keep­ing all these in mind, the gov­ern­ment must form a mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee,” sug­gested CID of­fi­cers.
