The report, which was submitted to the court, however stated that there was a violation established under Section 79 of the Land Acquisition Act. However, it did not appear that Ashok was responsible. It would now be the job of the sub-registrar to find out who had violated the norms in the case.
A first information report was filed by the Lokayukta police based on a complaint against Ashok. It was alleged that he had directed the Bangalore Development Authority to stop the acquisition of a plot of land and later he purchased it which itself amounted to an illegality. A private complaint was filed before the Lokayukta after this came to light.
