HC posts case against BSY, family to May 30

Justice Keshav Narayan adjourned to May 30, the hearing of the interim application filed by city-based advocate Sirajin Basha and who along with his associate K N Balaraj has filed a private complaint against Yeddyurappa and his family members.

Earlier the defence sought time for arguments citing unavailability of senior counsel Ravi B Naik till May 26.

The Supreme court had on April 29 refused to quash a Karnataka High Court order which stayed criminal proceedings against Yeddurappa and his family members in the case.

A division bench comprising Justice V S Sirpurkar and Justice T S Thakur dismissed the petition filed by the two advocates challenging the stay granted by the High Court against a trial court order which had taken cognisance of the complaint.

While dismissing the petition, the bench, however, asked the High Court to consider the application moved by the complainant, if any, for vacation of stay not later than six weeks.
