Bengaluru: Hacker Shrikrishna aka Sriki, the main accused in the Karnataka Bitcoin scandal said that all the allegations leveled against him were bogus.


He further maintained that the matter of seizing Rs 9 crore worth of Bitcoins from him was also totally false. When told that it’s the official police statement, he said that it’s just media hype.

“The matter is in the court. Let the court decide,” he said.

When asked that what was he doing with three laptops at a hotel, he said they were dysfunctional. He then told media persons that he would go and meet his father, who is being treated at the ICU of a hospital.

Sriki also pleaded innocence as to who gave surity for his bail.


The Bitcoin scandal has created a stir in Karnataka politics, putting the Opposition Congress and the ruling BJP at loggerheads.

Sriki and his friend Vishnu Bhat were arrested by the police in connection with a hotel brawl.
