HC stays three FIRs against Yeddyurappa
The High Court on Tuesday granted a stay on the Lokayukta proceedings against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa in three cases of denotification registered against him. 

Yeddyurappa had approached the court seeking quashing of FIRs filed by the Lokayukta police against him. He had contended that the FIR has not been filed as per Section 12 of the Lokayukta Act which calls for a compliance report to be placed before the competent authority -  governor in this case.

He had claimed that the complaints were based on the CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) report and not based on PAC report which is normally placed before the floor of the House.

During the hearing, Additional Solicitor General Krishna Dixit representing CAG contended that CAG report cannot be used as an evidence to file criminal complaints as report is used for making public policies.   Senior counsel C V Nagesh representing Yeddyurappa contended that a FIR cannot be filed on the basis of the CAG report and sought a stay on all the FIRs against Yeddyurappa. However, Justice Rathnakala granted stay on further proceedings based on three FIRs.
