Bengaluru: Senior IPS officer Bhaskar Rao to enter politics?


Team Udayavani, Sep 17, 2021, 11:05 AM IST

Bengaluru: Senior IPS officer and Additional Director General of Police (ADGP railways) Bhaskar Rao has reportedly applied for voluntary retirement from service.

If certain sources are to be believed, Rao may enter politics and contest from a constituency in Bengaluru south region in the next assembly election.

The issue came to light on Thursday and reportedly, Rao is not happy with the way the state government treated him.

The 1990-batch IPS officer, who also served as the Bengaluru city police commissioner, still has three years of service left.

Rao was recently in the news after he filed a protest memo against a CBI report of June 30, 2021 for closure of probe into the audio leak of an official phone intercept to the media on account of the lack of evidence to establish how the intercept reached the media.
