A Bitcoin storm is threatening to uproot many political bigwigs in Karnataka. An alleged international hacker arrested by the police told about transfer of Bitcoins worth thousands of crores into the accounts of some big political leaders in the state. Sri Krishna, in his 20s, was arrested by the police in connection with a murderous attack on a youth at a high-end pub in Bengaluru in early 2018 and had managed to dodge the cops for over two years before he was caught.

According to the police, Sri Krishna claims that he has hacked into two cryptocurrency exchanges and stolen 5,000 Bitcoins worth over Rs 2,000 crore. He has also shocked the police by revealing that he has hacked several government websites and manipulated tenders worth hundreds of crores. He is also being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for his alleged cyber scams.

According to unconfirmed reports, he was forced to transfer these Bitcoins into the accounts of some top political leaders from the ruling BJP. The alleged role of some police officers has also come under the scanner.
