HC reserves order on HDK's plea

The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday reserved its order in a petition filed by former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, seeking the quashing of the illegal land denotification case filed against him before a lower court.

Justice H N Nagamohan Das reserved his judgement in the case filed before the Lokayukta court, alleging illegalities in the denotification of 3.9 acres at Thanisandra in Bangalore Urban district, when Kumaraswamy was the chief minister.

On April 16, the Lokayukta police, following a private complaint by M S Mahadevaswamy, had filed a charge sheet against Kumaraswamy, accusing him of illegally denotifying a piece of land that had been acquired for the formation of Arkavathy Layout.

Former minister C Chennigappa and others, the erstwhile owners of the land, are the co-accused in the case. Mahadevaswamy had alleged that Kumaraswamy denotified 3.8 acres of land at Thanisandra village in 2007, at the behest of Chennigappa, the then Forest minister, despite the fact that Bangalore Development Authority had acquired the land and even formed sites.
