BSY, kin appear before CBI court

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and his family members on Wednesday appeared before the CBI court in connection with involving kickback in illegal mining.

Of the 13 accused, except one all the 12, including Yeddyurappa’s sons – Lok Sabha member B Y Raghavendra, B Y Vijayendra, son-in-law R N Sohan Kumar, were present before CBI Special Judge M S Balakrishna.

The judge adjourned the case to July 1 after the special public prosecutor sought time to file the surety verification report of the two accused in the case.

On December 10, the court had granted bail to all the 13 accused while imposing certain conditions. CBI had filed a charge sheet in October last year against the accused, including senior vice-president of a Bellary-based private steel company and five firms, besides a trust run by the Yeddyurappa family, for alleged abuse of official position and corruption.
