Mangaluru, Nov 20, 2021: Senior Congress Leader and former minister B Ramanatha Rai has demanded an investigation by a sitting judge into the Bitcoin scam that has rocked the state.
Speaking to reporters at the Congress Office on November 20, Saturday, Rai said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai by stating that even Congressmen were involved in the scam, has admitted that there was indeed a scam. Rai said whoever may be involved, truth must come out through a high level probe.
CM Bommai stating that the Prime Minister has asked him to ignore the issue, is just an attempt to evade the matter, Rai said adding there were several influential people in this racket.
