Justice Anand Byrareddy ordered issue of notices to the respondents, including Mahadevaswamy, on whose private complaint the Lokayukta Court initiated the proceedings.
On April 21, the Lokayukta court had ordered issue of summons to Kumaraswamy and others on the private complaint which alleged he violated rules in ordering denotification of 3.8 acres of land in Thanisandra acquired for formation of a layout. The court had directed Kumaraswamy to appear before it on May 21.
Kumaraswamy`s counsel Hazmath Pasha submitted that the land was denotified to the landlords on compassionate grounds as their father, a well-known surgeon had rendered yeomen service.
He alleged that the complaint was "politically motivated" filed at the instance rival party BJP and the complainant Mahadevaswamy is a BJP activist.
