Audiogate: Raichur cops launch probe even as CM postpones SIT formation-1

Bengaluru: Even though the state government is delaying the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the Audiogate, in which former CM BS Yeddyurappa is found making offers to the son of an MLA to switch the sides, Raichur police intensified the investigation.

On Wednesday night they did a mahajar and panchaname at the Devadurga IB where BJP State Chief BSY and his supporters allegedly made an offer to Sharanu Gauda, son of Gurumitkal MLA Nagana Gauda.

According to the sources, the investigation has been handed over to the Raichur police from the Devadurga police where Sharanu Gauda had lodged a complaint.

"The case was handed over to the Raichur police on Tuesday. The investigation started on Wednesday. Raichur DySP office is investigating," confirmed police sources.

Meanwhile, the legal team of former CM BS Yeddyurappa moved to Karnataka High Court bench in Kalaburugi pleading quashing of the FIR registered by the Devadurga police against their client.
