Bangalore: The Lokayukta court on Monday asked police to complete within 20 days the probe into allegations of amassing disproportionate assets against D Balakrishna Gowda, son of former Prime Minister H D Devegowda.

Judge N K Sudhindra Rao adjourned the hearing of the case to February 7, asking the Lokayukta police to file the final report within 20 days.

SN Balakrishna, a retired employee of a private firm in Bhadravathi town of Shimoga district, had filed a complaint on September 22 accusing Gowda of possessing wealth worth Rs 70 crore disproportionate to his known sources of income.

He said the assets owned by Gowda, a former bureaucrat, are currently valued at Rs 500 crore. The police had conducted raids on Gowda's houses after filing an FIR against him on September 30.
