Bangalore: A Lokayukta court on Monday posted to January 12 for orders the admissability of a private complaint against M Krishnappa, MLA, for allegedly amassing wealth to the tune of about Rs 700 crore disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Lokayukta Special Court Judge N K Sudhindra Rao posted the complaint filed by city-based advocate H C Prakash to January 12 for orders on whether or not to admit the case.

Prakash in his complaint filed against Krishnappa, his wife Priyadarshini Krishnappa, his two sons, Priya Krishna (25) who is also an MLA from Govindrajnagar constituency and Pradeep Krishna (22) alleged that they had amassed property to the tune of about Rs 700 crore, which was disporportionate to their known sources of income.

He alleged that they had landed properties close to about 700 acres in their names in various villages in Magadi taluk in Bangalore Rural District, which they had neither disclosed to the Lokayukta nor the State Election Commission (despite two for them being MLAs).

Prakash further charged that statements which they had furnished to the Lokayukta and SEC on their other properties in and around Bangalore district, was "full of discrepancies which itself ran into several crores".

The complainant sought for action to be initiated under section 13 of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
