Nataraj allegedly owns 40 acres of land in Kanakapura taluk in the names of brother and close relatives, 15.24 acres of land in Kollegal taluk, Chamarajanagar district and in Bengaluru city. After social activist, Raikumar, filed complaint in Kanakapura second additional sessions court claiming that Nataraj had property worth Rs 250 crore, the court which heard the petition on November 22, directed ACB officials to investigate the complaint. ACB deputy superintendent of police, Chandrashekhar, who has registered the case, has undertaken probe.             

Nataraj had joined duty at Chennarayapatna taluk students’ hostel under social welfare department in the capacity of junior warden in 1995. He used to get daily wage of Rs 700 for the same. He later was transferred to Kanakapura taluk and his services were confirmed. His ancestral property is four acres of agricultural land in Erangere village in Kodihali revenue division, Kanakapura. He does not have any source of income other than government salary, Ravikumar said in the complaint. He added that after his transfer to Kanakapura, Nataraj acquired large tracts of land in Erangere, Edamadu, Harohalli, Chikkaramgere, Kaggalahalli, Manahalli etc. Some of these lands are in his name while others are in joint names of himself and his brother, Nagaraju. Some other lands were  transferred in his father's name and through gift deeds, were transferred in the name of his brother. The complainant has claimed that Nataraj also has Benami property in relatives’ names.

Nataraj also has bricks kiln having investment of over two crore rupees, juice factory, residential houses etc. He has a three-storied house in J P Nagar Bengaluru and another house in Kanakapura, all of which the complainant claims, are illegally acquired. He has several vehicles including Scorpio, car, Tata Sumo, three motor bikes and other vehicles.

    Once a tiger gets to taste human blood ... then he doesn't enjoy hunting animals any more ... just like that once the income of crime enters our blood ... then the we don't enjoy the income of honesty. (quote from Hindi film).

    He is the real Indian who got blessed with our Chowkidar's ache din scheme. He might have gained a lot due to demonetorisation and converted all his black money in to white. I dont think he is alone in the illegal income. He should be investigated thoroughly and all his assets should be seized by Govt and he should be sent to jail for at least 10 years to enjoy ganji oota there.
