Cancel bail for BSY's sons: Basha

Cancel bail for BSY's sons: Basha

Advocate files petition in High Court; claims all sail together in commission of crime

In his petition filed on Wednesday, Basha has apprehended that the accursed - B Y Raghavendra, B Y Vijayendra and R N Sohan Kumar, the son-in-law of Yeddyurappa and legislator D Hemachandra Sagar “sail together in the commission of the crime and also political clout, apart from the extra-legal influence that they can bring to bear upon the bureaucracy, the witness in the case and the evidence in general.”

The Special Lokayukta Court hearing the private complaints, had granted bail to all the four while rejecting the pleas of Yeddyurappa and former minister S N Krishnaiah Setty.

It is stated by Basha that the Lokayukta judge, in the bail order, treated all the four on the same footing and has highlighted the close and active involvement of the said accused in and through the reasoning in his order.

“However, despite such sound reasoning and justifiable findings, the accused no. 2 to 4 have been granted bail, which in the totality of circumstances of the case, is unjustifiable,” the petition states.

Basha has said that Hemachandra Sagar, being actively involved in business ventures with the of Yeddyurappa, stands clearly on the same footing as Krishnaiah Setty, (whose bail has been rejected by the special judge) in terms of his connivance in the commission of crime, yielding of the fruits of such crime, ability to influence witnesses and also his capacity to wield political and extra legal influence that could hamper fair process of trial.

B Y Raghavendra, B Y Vijayendra, R N Sohan Kumar were granted bail under certain conditions on October 15. The three were directed to furnish statements of all money received by Davalagiri Property Developers Private Limited and Bhagath Homes Private Limited from the date of its inception till the day of filing the complaint. The documents will have to be certified by a chartered accountant and submitted to the court in seven days time.

‘Relax conditions’

Meanwhile, the sons of Yeddyurappa have moved the High Court seeking relaxation of their bail conditions.
