Justice Rao seeks relief from personal appearance

 Former Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao moved an application seeking exemption from appearance before the Lokayukta special court on Friday in the corruption and extortion case. The court posted the next hearing to October 19.

The advocate representing Justice Rao filed an application seeking exemption quoting health issues. On Wednesday, the Karnataka High Court refused to grant an interim order on exemption from personal appearance before the Lokayukta court.

The Lokayukta court had issued summons after taking cognisance of the additional charge sheet filed by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) naming Justice Rao as an accused in the case pertaining to extortion and demand for bribe from M N Krishnamurthy, former Executive Engineer, Zilla Panchayat (Bengaluru Urban).
