Bengaluru, Nov 29 Police have booked former Karnataka chief ministers Siddaramaiah and H D Kumaraswamy along with former Bengaluru police commissioner T Sunil Kumar, his subordinates and some Congress and JD(S) leaders on sedition charges for protesting income tax raids during the Lok Sabha polls. Based on a complaint by activist Mallikarjuna A, a city court recently directed the police at the Commercial Street station to register a case under various sections of the IPC including criminal conspiracy and attempting to or abetting waging war against the Government of India. The case relates to protests near the I-T office in Bengaluru by the leaders including the then Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy against the I-T raids at the residence of Congress and JD(S) leaders. The charges are that Kumaraswamy had informed the public about the possible raids after getting inputs about the action. Kumaraswamy had told the media on March 27 that there was every likelihood of raids as a large number of central security forces had arrived at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). His apprehensions came true the next day as the forces fanned out to different parts of the state. Later, a massive demonstration was conducted at the Income Tax office. Other prominent people.
