I take responsibility for report leak: Lokayukta

TNN | Jul 22, 2011, 06.29am IST

For once, Lokayukta Justice Santosh N Hegde was not at his usual best. A day after the explosive report on illegal mining was leaked to the media, he appeared angry, forlorn and distraught.
Forgetting words and fighting back tears, Justice Hegde, in his first reaction to reporters on Thursday said: "I feel really let down and cheated but don’t want to blame anyone.
I take full responsibility for the leak." Hegde later held two meetings with his team to combat their downbeat mood and decide on a course of action. The Lokayukta had initiated investigation into illegal mining a year ago but many feel their painstaking efforts are in vain.
Earlier last week, the former judge had grown emotional during an interview with a television channel, when he spoke about his confidante director (vigilance) U V Singh, who also broke down in the recorded version recalling an attack on him while inspecting encroachment of a lake.
