Bantwal, Aug 14: A flood victim has lodged a police complaint in the town police station here against B Mooda village accountant (VA), accusing the official of using derogatory language against and deriding him for failing to 'host' him properly and not providing drinks in return for surveying 14 flood-affected houses.

The above complaint has been lodged by a flood victim, Latif B C, a resident of Talapady in the taluk. He stated in the complaint that his house and houses of neigbours in the vicinity were inundated due to torrential rains. “The village accountant and his staff arrived at my residence on August 12 at about 11.30 am for surveying the destruction due to floods in Talapady village. They filled in the application forms and got them signed for disbursement of compensation. But later I got a telephone call in the name of village accountant from telephone number 8618461060 at about 10.15 pm that night. The caller said that he had not been properly ‘entertained’ by me for surveying 14 houses affected by floods. I was also blamed for not having the courtesy to offer even drinks to the visitors. They also charged me of being arrogant," Latif said in the complaint.

“As I got confused, I telephoned that number. But the call was rejected. My house is in shambles due to floods. I have not even cleaned up the house. My family and I were staying in the house of relatives and celebrated Bakrid festival there. How can I entertain the village accountant? I am depressed due to the misery heaped on me by the floods. Therefore, I request you to investigate the incident and provide justice to me,” he urged in the complaint.

A case in the connection stands registered in the town police station here. Investigations have continued.

    The best treatment for the VA in such a situation was to bathe him in the flood water.

    1. If every one have zero tolerance to such high handedness - our DK will not remain back wards it is right now!
    2. Government officials should fear and respect the law and give high priority and respect to citizens.
    3. Some comments herein indicate that coastal people are divided. If we were truly educated it would have been easy to fool us.
    4. Government servants have to understand their duty and not expect special treatment.
    5. Truly speaking antinational is the one who ..... Does not help his country man in distress, when he is paid to do that job.

    very true. Only outward the chaddis talk ill about beef. But in reality, in DK district most of the beef serving hotels are thronged by the majority people. The hotels do dull business during Sabarimala time.

    This fact was told to me by one of the beef hotel owners.

    Is it Bakri-Eid is important or to set right home first which devastated by floods. While Village Accountant arrives why not all available and present whatever requested. Why other families not blamed anything against accountant. There are even other muslim families around. Please dont try to play minority victim card no longer ramnath rai around.

    @Dhanajan Honnavara dear friend dont you feel you are going out of the line?It should have been the other way round.The accountant should have brought something help to the flood effected victims ,not expect to host as guest .Shame on him .He was expecting some money to help them?what makes you to accuse him as a minority card holder?Dont bring again here politics .Feel what it is like to loose home in flood and over that accountants charges.someone must bringout the facts what is really going on in villages or how govt employees are working.Did he atleast extended help towards the flood victims?

Entertain to him means he was looking for something under the table and may be he was looking for SUNNY LEONE NAUTANKI to entertain him !
