By Express News ServiceBENGALURU: In a relief to former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy, the Karnataka High Court has quashed three cases registered against him by the electoral officer with Chikkaballapura town police during Lok Sabha elections held in March 2014.
Based on the complaint filed by S S Abid, Team Leader, Office of the Deputy Director, Chikkaballapur district, the three cases were registered against Kumaraswamy under Section 188 and 341 of IPC.
The complaint was filed against the workers of the political party for causing inconvenience to the general public by blocking the road.
The allegation not being specific to the petitioner and hence the FIRs are required to be quashed, he argued.
As Section 341 is concerned, this court accepts the contention of the counsel that the complaint does not make out a case as against the petitioner.
