Court summons to BSY, 5 others

The Lokayukta court, on Wednesday, issued summons to six people including BJP national vice-president B S Yeddyurappa and his daughter B S Arunadevi on charges of obtaining Karnataka Housing Board (KHB) sites under journalist quota.

The six accused have been directed to appear before the court for the hearing on March 18. Yeddyurappa had reportedly recommended KHB to allot sites bearing the numbers 44, 45, 57 and 58, at Kallahalli near Vinobanagar in Shivamogga under journalist quota to the four employees of his institution during his tenure as deputy chief minister in 2007. Following this, KHB allotted sites to the employees, namely Krishna, Sandesh Gowda, Manjunath and Shivashankar, without even taking applications from them. Later, all the four sites were registered in the name of Arunadevi.     

Shivamogga-based advocate Vinod had filed a complaint before the Lokayukta court, questioning the allotment, in 2012. The Lokayukta police submitted a ‘B’ report, after conducting the inquiry for seven months. The advocate filed objections to it. The court rejected the ‘B’ report and directed the accused to appear before it.
