Court questions cops over releasing accused
Hearing arguments, the court asked police to produce the accused at 4pm on Thursday.
Mahadevaswamy, who was booked on the charges of cheating and forgery, had allegedly teamed up with Mysuru Palace Board deputy director T S Subramanya to effect the transfer of ACP Mysuru Palace by levelling false allegations against him.
The III JMFC court judge hearing the bail petition of Mahadevaswamy questioned city police as to why Mahadevasamy was not released as they did to another accused, advocate Nagaraj representing Mahadevaswamy told TOI.
Sources claimed that Subramanya was questioned from 7pm to 11.30pm on Tuesday before he was let off by Saraswathipuram cops.
Vishnuvardhana said the investigation was underway and no fresh arrests were made in the case.
