Yediyurappa appears before special court, seeks bail in land denotification case
FORMER Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Friday appeared before the Special Court dealing exclusively with criminal cases related to Legislators, in connection with a land denotification case.
Arriving with senior advocate C V Nagesh, the Karnataka BJP strongman applied for bail following which the Sessions judge B Jayantha Kumar sought the complainant’s advocate to respond to this plea.
The complainant’s advocate K V Dhananjay said that a response would be filed after going through the bail plea. “If there are causes for opposing bail, objections will be filed,” he said, as he sought time for the same. The case was then adjourned to Saturday.
The special court had summoned the 79-year-old leader in a private complaint filed by one Vasudeva Reddy in 2013.
The Lokayaukta police had filed a B Report in the case citing lack of evidence; however, the special court had rejected the report.
