Shimoga: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister K S Eshwarappa Monday appeared before the Lokayukta Police here in connection with a wealth case filed against him.

Besides Eshwarappa, his son K E Kantesh and daughter- in-law Shalini also appeared before the police, fulfilling the conditions laid down by the court while granting them bail in the case recently.

The case was registered on a private complaint by an advocate, B Vinond, accusing Eshwarappa and family members of amassing wealth misusing his official powers since 2006.

Allowing the bail pleas, the court had directed the three to appear before the police within ten days.

The court had earlier directed the Lokayuktha police to investigate the allegations and submit a detailed report before February 4.

Police had raided the house and establishments of Eshwarappa.
