Former DC P.S. Vastrad, who was recently transferred as the Commissioner of the Dept. of Archaeology & Museums, on Thur-sday vacated 'Jalasannidhi,' the official residence of the Mysore DC, opposite Kalamandira.

The new DC Dr. Ramegowda yesterday occupied the official residence after performing puja and the building is being given a facelift by the PWD.

It is reported that after his tr-ansfer, Vastrad had sought three months' time to vacate the quarters, but following reports in a section of the media, he vacated the premises on Thursday itself.

Searching for house: Meanwhile, Vastrad and his family who are searching for an alternate house, are presently living in the outhouse of 'Jalasannidhi.'

Vastrad, who expressed anguish over reports of his not vacating the residence, said that they have shifted to the outhouse and would vacate the same on getting an alternate accommodation. He added that his family would shift after his son completes his PUC exams.
