Report on assets case against BSY submitted

The Lokayukta police on Friday submitted the reports of the Conservator of Forests, Bhadra Tiger Reserve, and the tahsildar, in a disproportionate assets case against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.

The Lokayukta Court had earlier ordered the Lokayukta police to conduct a comprehensive inquiry under Section 202 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) and submit a report.
The Court had taken cognisance of a complaint filed by Shimoga-based advocate Vinod which alleges that lands measuring 69 acres were obtained in the name of Yeddyurappa’s relatives and associates.

Ambiguity

The police had told the Court earlier that in addition to the 69 acres, there was ambiguity pertaining to seven acres of land and a clear picture would emerge only after the tahsildar and the Conservator of Forests of Bhadra Tiger Reserve gave a report.

The Lokayukta Court has also directed the police to conduct an inquiry about the 250 acres of land in Echavadi village alleged to be used for benaami transactions by Yeddyurappa.

Land conversion

The complaint states that Yeddyurappa and his son were indulging in land conversion deals and utilising them for benaami transactions.  It is also alleged that the former chief minister misused his powers and got the conversion done in a short time and he and his son had abused their positionsas public servants.
