The then Assistant Professor of Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute (BMCRI) , who was booked by the Yeshwanthpur police for endorsing documents of people seeking Aadhaar cards without verifying in January 2018, has been acquitted of all charges due to lack of evidence.

The police, based on the complaint filed by Ashok Lenin, Deputy Director, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), charged Dr. Ramamurthy MB, under the Information Technology Act, The Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services), impersonation and cheating.

During the course of investigations, the police questioned the beneficiaries, visited their houses to check the address proof and recorded their statement and found no proof nor any records against Dr. Ramamurthy and concluded that he had not committed any offence and the charges levelled against him were false, sources said.

Based on the outcome, the police filed a B report before the court absolving Dr. Ramamurthy of all the charges after obtaining due permission from the court.
