Court dismisses plea against appointment to SPCA

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday dismissed a petition challenging the appointment of Ekambar Naidu as a member representing the civil society in the State Police Complaints Authority (SPCA).

Justice Aravind Kumar passed the order rejecting the petition, filed by Adarsh G.K., a social worker and resident of Bengaluru. The petitioner had alleged that the appointment was a “favour” shown by the then Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as Mr. Naidu had a “close nexus” with him.

Contending that the High Court, in an earlier proceeding, had asked the State to consider the appointment of the petitioner to the SPCA or the State Human Rights Commission, Mr. Adarsh contended that Mr. Naidu’s appointment as a civil service representative was bad in law.
