‎Bengaluru: CID sleuths arrested DySP Shanthakumar for his involvement in the PSI recruitment fraud.


He was taken into custody after being interrogated for hours on Thursday.

Shanthakumar had been serving in the recruitment department of the police for the past 10 years. The state government had transferred him after his name surfaced in the PSI recruitment scam.
