Denotification case: Petition dismissed

A High Court single bench on Saturday dismissed the petition by R Suguna, one of the accused in the land denotification case involving former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, his family members and others.

Justice N Ananda, who heard the matter seeking to quash the proceedings against her in respect to the private compliant number 4, wherein advocate Sirajin Basha had made her one of the parties in the denotification case, dismissed the petition.  

The complainant had alleged that Yeddyurappa had denotified one acre and 25.6 guntas of land belonging to Suguna and her family members in Rachenahalli and in return, Suguna sold one acre 23.2 guntas of land to Health Zone Advisors (India) Pvt Ltd (HZAPL), a company promoted by Yeddyurappa's family members, for Rs 2.55 crore, while the market value was Rs 34.41 crore.

The High Court dismissed her plea giving the green signal to the Lokayukta police to go ahead with the investigation. Meanwhile, Namrata Shilpi, one of the accused in the same case, withdrew her petition on similar grounds.
