Court seeks sworn statement against BSY

The Special Lokayukta Court on Monday took cognisance of a private complaint filed against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and his son B Y Raghavendra, accusing them of accumulating wealth and possessing properties disproportionate to their income.

Pronouncing the orders, Judge N K Sudhindra Rao directed the complainant Vinod B to give his sworn statement on June 30. The cognisance has been taken for offences Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 13(1)(c) and 13(1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

On May 21, 2012, a complaint had been filed by Shimoga-based advocate Vinod B alleging that the properties had been obtained in the name of Yeddyurappa’s relatives and associates. The complaint also named private persons B K Somashekar, Adilakshmamma, B S Umadevi, B K Radhamani and H V Manjunath as the accused.

It is alleged that Yeddyurappa and his son were indulging in land conversion deals and utilising them for benami transactions. He misused his powers and got the conversion done in a short time and he and his son misused their posts.
