Bengaluru: Sources said that the SIT has asked Shivajinagar MLA Roshan Baig who was suspended from the Congress, to appear before it for hearing in the IMA multi-crore scam.

The SIT has issued notice to Baig to attend the hearing on July 11. But Baig did not appear for hearing citing ill-health reason. So, the SIT has directed the leader to appear for hearing on July 15 compulsorily, sources said.

It is said that before fleeing from the country, IMA chief Mansoor Khan, in his video, mentioned the name of Roshan Baig and other issues.

Hemant Nimbalkar report?

It is said that ACB IGP Hemant Nimbalkar had given a favourable report to the IMA company. 

In 2017, the RBI general manager had written a letter to the Revenue department principal secretary. Then the government had asked the Bengaluru urban Deputy Commissioner to investigate about it and it was handed over to then CID (economic crimes) IG Hemant Nimbalkar who had given a favourable report about the company.
