MYSURU: Former CM HD

Kumaraswamy

claimed on Friday that

blackmailers

had demanded Rs 5 crore from former

Karnataka

minister

Ramesh Jarkiholi

before releasing an alleged

video

recording of him.
“I have credible information that a Rs 5 crore deal was struck. The video was leaked after the deal went awry. The police should investigate and arrest the blackmailers,” the JD(S) member said.
Jarkiholi quit as the water resources minister on Wednesday after activist Dinesh Kallahalli filed a complaint accusing him of sexually exploiting a woman after promising her a job at Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.
Kumaraswamy said many activists had claimed about possessing sex CDs of politicians and that such people should be investigated and booked for blackmail and extortion. He sought action against Kallahalli, alleging that he was pretending to be the woman’s saviour while working at someone’s behest.
