Mangaluru, Jan 23, 2018: Sirin Madhusudan, Manager of the Kulai Branch of the Indian Overseas Bank who is presently in judicial custody in connection with the alleged diversion of Rs 55 crore belonging to Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Ltd has been reportedly subject to torture by fellow prisoners who have even managed to extort Rs 15 lakh from the former’s parents.
The accused have been identified as Nikhil, Raju, Charan, Tilak, Mithun and three others. It is said Tilak belonging to the Kodikere gang and a few others were lodged in the same cell in which Madhusdan was lodged.
