City court dismisses defamation case against Lokayukta


Mangalore Today News Network

June 29: A city court has dismissed a defamation suit filed by an IPS officer against Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde and 11 other newspaper publishers on the ground that it is not "maintainable" on June 28.

Lokayukta
Superintendent of Police M Hemanth Nimbalkar, who had been accused by the Lokayukta of possessing assets disproportionate to his income, had filed a defamation suit against Hegde and editors and publishers of 11 newspapers.


Nimbalkar had accused Hegde of speculating about the worth of his property without any firsthand knowledge and the same being published in newspapers.


The case was dismissed on preliminary grounds of not being maintainable.


Lokayukta had conducted raids on the residence and other premises of Nimbalkar in the state and Maharastra last year and claimed to have unearthed assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
