Bengaluru baron and former BJP minister G Janardhan Reddy on Saturday afternoon appeared before the Crime Branch in Karnataka, after evading the police for four days.

Accompanied by advocate Chandrashekar, Reddy entered the Crime Branch premises in Chamrajpet, South Bengaluru where he will be questioned in connection with an alleged scheme.

Three days after remaining elusive, baron G Janardhana Reddy had released a on Saturday, saying he would appear before the police in connection with an alleged scam, maintaining that he had not done anything wrong.

Reddy said he was not absconding and was very much in the city, asserting that there was no need for him to flee. He also rubbished reports that he had fled to Hyderabad or some other city.

“I have not committed anything wrong. The police do not have not a single document to prove that I am wrong. They are misleading the media,” he claimed in his message telecast by TV channels.

Reddy, who was a minister in the erstwhile Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Karnataka, said he never panicked as his name neither figured in the first information (FIR) report nor was any notice served to him.

“Now that the notice has been issued by the police, I have decided to appear before the Central Crime Branch today itself though the notice says I should appear on Sunday,” Reddy said.

“I decided to make this to let people know the truth. I have faith in the police and believe that they would not succumb to any political pressure,” he added.

The Central Crime Branch police had launched a hunt for him since Wednesday in connection with a money transaction worth crores of rupees, allegedly linked to a scheme.

The CCB was also on the lookout for Reddy’s close aide, Ali Khan, who had allegedly struck an Rs 20-crore deal with Syed Ahmed Fareed of Ambidant Marketing Pvt. Ltd — a company accused of involvement in the scheme — to bail him out from the Enforcement Directorate investigation.

Bengaluru Police Commissioner T Suneel Kumar had said on Wednesday that Reddy was absconding and the police were looking for him to question him in the case.

Reddy’s lawyer, CH Hanumantharaya, who earlier moved a city civil court on Friday seeking anticipatory bail, had told reporters that the minor baron would take a call on Saturday whether to appear before the CCB or not.

Europeans maimed natives in their colonies- wiped off populations after populations- employing the most brutal methods but when war came knocking on their door, it suddenly became about the world and humanity and peace and fundamental rights. Nah, that doesn't settle right.

@shabdtweets Makes sense when you consider that the very idea of universal human rights was used to justify colonialism. "Humans everywhere should be/are same> but some humans have not attained the level of civilization that Europeans have> Hence it is our duty to bring them up to our level"
