Mangaluru, Sep 16: The office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax (Administration) in Mangaluru will not be shifted to Goa, according to Mangaluru South MLA Vedavyas Kamath.

The statement comes following widespread opposition to the reported move of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to abolish the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax in Mangaluru and merge it with the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax, Panaji.

Speaking to media persons in the city today, the MLA claimed that there was no such proposal by the CBDT.

"The I-T office in Mangaluru has a principal commissioner, and so does the I-T office in Goa. There is a proposal to combine both the designations and appoint one principal commissioner. Under the circumstances, only the position of principal commissioner of Mangaluru may get shifted to Goa. But the news that the entire office in Mangaluru is getting merged with the office in Goa is far from the truth," he said.

Mangaluru, which is the administrative headquarters of the Dakshina Kannada district, is a commercial, industrial, educational, healthcare and start-up hub.

Bengaluru, Sept 26: A nursing intern with a top hospital has filed a complaint against a neurosurgeon, accusing him of raping her in a hotel in the city.

Police said the alleged incident took place on July 15 and the 25-year-old victim filed a police complaint on September 19 as the hospital management allegedly failed to act on her complaint about the incident.

Police registered a case of rape, sexual harassment, criminal intimidation and cheating under IPC against the neurosurgeon.

“On July 15, he asked me to meet him outside the hospital; he gave me an address in Wilson Garden. He took me to a room, stripped and sexually abused me. Later, he promised to marry me, but tried to blackmail me for sexual favours. He harassed me with video calls and abusive messages,” the woman alleged.

TH30ASSEMBLY.jpg

Bengaluru, Sept 27: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has won the trust vote in the state Assembly against the no-confidence motion by the Congress against his government.

The no-confidence motion moved by the opposition Congress was defeated by voice vote on Saturday night after a fierce debate for about six hours.

The no-confidence motion was moved by leader of the opposition Siddaramaiah.

Karnataka assembly Speaker Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri had on Thursday admitted a no-confidence motion moved by the Congress against the BJP government led by Yediyurappa.

Responding to it, Yediyurappa had said that he had no objections to the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition.

"I have no objections to the no-confidence motion, let them do it. Every six months they must move the no-confidence motion once so that I can stay safe for the next six months," Yediyurappa had told reporters.

The Congress leaders including Siddaramaiah and MLA Ajay Singh had said that the party will seek to raise corruption charges against the government in the Assembly.

"There is rampant corruption in the government, people are dying everywhere and every day. In the last one week we have lost one central minister, one Rajya Sabha MP and an MLA. In the corona corruption case, there has been a corruption of almost Rs 2,000 crores and there are riots everywhere. People are dying, and there are corruption charges against the Chief Minister. The no-confidence motion is about the corruption charges in various areas, including his family and various departments also," Singh had said.
