Ambidant scam: Businessman accuses CCB ACP of demanding money

Bengaluru: In a serious allegation against a Central Crime Branch (CCB) ACP investigating the multi-crore Ambidant scam, a businessman and an investor in Ambidant Marketing Pvt Ltd has written to DG&IGP Neelamani N. Raju, accusing the ACP of blackmailing him and threatening to fix him in a wrong case if the money is not paid.

In the letter dated November 19, Vijay Tata accused CCB ACP Venkatesh Prasanna of harassing him in the name of investigation and threatening to fix him in a wrong case if the demands are not met. Vijay also submitted a CD comprising call recordings between him and the ACP in which the officer allegedly asks him for money.

According to the letter, CCB had summoned Vijay in connection with the investigation into Ambidant scam as he had transactions with the dubious company.

Vijay wrote that Prasanna called up an assistant commissioner, Nagaraj, in the Revenue Department and asked him to seize Vijay's properties. The officer also allegedly used some activists to protest in front of the DG's office to build pressure on police to initiate action against Vijay.

Prasanna, according to Vijay, leaked selective papers to the media to bring pressure on the police department to arrest him.

Vijay has requested the top police officer to hear the telephonic conversation between him and Prasanna in the CD and initiate a probe.
