The Karnataka High Court yesterday served a notice to the Bangalore police commissioner for not registering a First Information Report (FIR) against former cricketer Anil Kumble in an impersonation and forgery case.

Serving the notice, Justice S Abdul Naseer directed the police commissioner to explain by next week why an FIR was not registered against Kumble, who had been accused of forging the signature of petitioner Kumar V Jahgirdar in an application for renewing the passport of the latter's minor daughter Aaruni Kumar Jahgirdar in April 2011.

Though Kumble married Jahgirdar's wife Chetana Ramtheertha in 1999 after they legally separated, the Supreme Court upheld the family court's ruling granting joint custody of Aaruni to both while maintaining the petitioner's right over the 17-year-old daughter as her natural father and legal guardian.
