Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has decided to recommend the name of retired High Court judge Justice B Veerappa to the post of Karnataka Upa Lokayukta. The recommendation will be sent to Governor Thaawar Chand Gehlot. An official notification appointing Justice Veerappa as Upa Lokayukta is expected in a couple of days.

Justice Veerappa, who retired on May 31 last year, was known as a fearless judge. He headed a bench that abolished the Anti-Corruption Bureau, restoring powers of the Lokayukta. He also headed a one-man commission to look into the PSI recruitment scam and submitted his report earlier this year.
