Bengaluru: Three police officers have been placed under suspension after the CBI filed a chargesheet against them in the Rs 4,000-crore I-Monetary Advisory (IMA) scam. The state government issued suspension orders for EB Sridhara, the then DySP in the CID, M Ramesh, the then police inspector of Commercial Street police station, and P Gowrishankar, the then police sub-inspector of Commercial Street station on Monday. However, it is yet to take a decision on senior IPS officers Inspector Gener Hemant Nimbalkar and DCP-ranked Ajay Hilori who too have been named as accused in the CBI chargesheet. The CBI has alleged in the supplementary charge sheet that Karnataka government revenue officials along with police officials of Bengaluru had closed the enquiries and verifications conducted by them into the complaints and information received by IMA. It is alleged that the officers protected the interests of Mohammed Mansoor Khan, the MD of IMA by submitting a report in his favour.
