Bangalore: A complaint was filed before the Lokayukta court on Thursday against BJP MLA CT Ravi charging him with "grabbing government land" for pecuniary gain.

Ravi allegedly got the Karnataka Housing Board (KHB) to allot three civic amenities sites in favour of a "non-existent" Anjaneya Education Society in Vijayapura, Chikmagalur, run by his relatives by producing "false documents" at a sum of Rs 12.09 lakh, whose market value today is over Rs five crore, the complaint said.

The complainant R Devi Prasad, a City Municipal Councillor, said though the the society was formed in 1989, subsequently it became dormant and these sites were allegedly allotted by KHB in 2006, when Ravi's wife was its President and her sister its general secretary.

Prasad also accused Ravi of getting two other residential sites allotted in his wife's name in Chikamagalur "using his position as an MLA, by adopting backdoor methods".

Besides Ravi, ten others, including his family members and two KHB officials, are listed as accused in the complaint.

The Lokayukta Court posted the complaint to December 17 for orders on its admissibility.
