A senior IAS officer was arrested here today by the Lokayukta Special Investigating Team (SIT) probing the Janthakal mining case.
Gangaram Bhaderia, who currently serves as Principal Secretary (Mujurai and stamping), is a 1989 batch officer.
"Bhaderia was arrested today after questioning," IGP of the Lokayukta SIT, K S R Charan Reddy, told PTI.
He said Bhaderia was produced before the Lokayukta special court which has remanded him in three days police custody.
He was arrested in connection with the alleged irregularities of Janthakal enterprises when he was the commissioner of mines during the chief ministership of H D Kumaraswamy.
The SIT had registered the cases against Kumaraswamy and his predecessor Dharam Singh as also against several officers in connection with the case at the direction of the Supreme Court.
