Relief for BSY in Rachenahalli de-notification case

B S Yeddyurappa

A special court on Tuesday disposed of a case of alleged illegal de-notification against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and others.

The case was pending in the wake of a stay granted by the Supreme Court to avoid parallel enquiry by different investigating agencies and courts.

The case pertains to one acre and 12 guntas of land in Rachenahalli in north Bengaluru. This case was one of the five private complaints filed by advocates from Shivamogga, Sirajin Basha and K N Balraj.

Meanwhile, a separate petition was filed before the Supreme Court seeking CBI investigation into the Rachenahalli de-notification based on the Lokayukta report on illegal mining. The CBI had filed the charge sheet and a CBI special court completed the trial and acquitted Yeddyurappa in October 2016.

"The other four complaints were disposed of by the Lokayukta special court some time ago. This case was not disposed of in the wake of the Supreme Court stay. Meanwhile, the cases against politicians were transferred to a special court. Recently, the Supreme Court disposed of the petition on which it had ordered stay on all proceedings pertaining to the Rachenahalli denotification case. Hence, the court disposed the case on the ground that the case has already been tried and disposed by the CBI court,’’ advocate Sandeep Patil said. The state BJP leaders have hailed the verdict.
