The Karnataka government has decided to refer investigations into the recovery of a large amount of cash and assets from a flat linked to the family of a senior state IAS officer Kapil Mohan to the state Lokayukta’s anti-corruption unit.

“The file came back from the CM saying it should be referred to the Lokayukta. The file has been sent to the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms for action,’’ said Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee.

During a raid in an apartment in north Bengaluru’s Golden Grand complex on August 5, a team of Economic Offences unit of CID and Income Tax authorities recovered Rs 4.37 crore in cash, over 2.5 kg of gold and diamonds and details of properties.

The raid was carried after the CID received a tip-off about money linked to cricket betting being stored in the apartment. The apartment was found to have been registered in the name of a private firm PSK Finance Solutions run by the family of Mohan.

The raid also revealed documents pertaining to the purchase and subsequent sale of over a dozen properties in Bengaluru, Noida and other parts of the country by the family of the 1990 batch IAS officer. Sources said that Kapil’s family had assets worth Rs 10 crore in immovable properties and investments in the share market.
Sources said the properties were shown to have been bought at very low prices and sold at high prices, indicating efforts at laundering black money.

The CID has not yet registered a case in the matter.
