Advance bail for BSY in another case

The High Court of Karnataka on Thursday granted anticipatory bail to former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa in cases pertaining to alleged illegal denotification of land and irregularities in housing co-operative societies.

Justice V Jagannathan directed Yeddyurappa to furnish a personal bond for Rs two lakh and not leave the State or the country without prior permission of the court.

The court observed that the petitioner had been granted anticipatory bail in similar cases of land denotification and nowhere has there been a complaint of him violating the bail conditions.

The Lokayukta court had, on July 5, ordered issue of summons to Congress legislator D K Shivakumar, Yeddyurappa, and others on complaints filed by T J Abraham and Kabbalegowda and adjourned the matter to August 2.


The High Court, on Thursday adjourned the hearing of anticipatory bail petition filed by former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy in relation to a corruption case, in which he has been accused of illegally denotifying 2.24 acres of land in Banashankari 6th stage layout in 2007, when he was the chief minister.

During the hearing, the Lokayukta counsel sought two weeks time to file a memo to vacate the stay on the Lokayukta proceedings against former chief minister Kumaraswamy.

Justice V Jagannathan observed that there were no chances of arrest given that the court, on July 24, had ordered eight weeks stay on the Lokayukta court proceedings.
The court adjourned the case for two weeks for further hearing.
