New Delhi, December 7: The suicide note of a driver of a KAS officer on Wednesday revealed that a Karnataka Administrative Service (KAS) officer has helped Minning baron Janardhan Reddy in converting his black money of Rs 100 crore into white on a commission of 20%.
The officer also asked Reddy to help him get a ticket to contest the 2018 Karnataka elections, said the suicide note. The deceased, Ramesh Gowda also pointed in his suicide note that his employer Bhima Naik was involved with more people. The note says Naik also met B Sriramulu, BJP MP from Bellary and a close associate of Janardhan Reddy.
Gowda who committed suicide by consuming poison said that he was constantly receiving death threats as he had solid information on how Reddy had converted his black money.
While Prime Minster Narendra Modi banned 86 % of cash in a single jolt so as to curb the flow of black money in the economy; after 30 days it seems that the black money is not seized but parked. It is the common man who is suffering and the note ban. The politicians and big businessmen are the least affected after the demonetisation.
