Kumaraswamy illegally recommended renewal of mining license of a mining company and allotted land to a private housing society.

Bangalore: Karnataka High Court on Tuesday refused to grant stay on the proceedings initiated against former Chief Minister, H D Kumaraswamy and his wife by a lower court on a private complaint filed against them.

Justice K N Keshavanarayan rejected the applications filed by Kumaraswamy and his wife Anita praying for staying the proceedings before the Lokayukta Special Court initiated on a
private complaint.

The Lokayukta court on August eight issued summons on Kumaraswamy and his wife asking them to appear before it today.

Kumaraswamy had challenged the issue of summons and also the proceedings initiated by the court against him.

The housing society in turn allotted a residential site to Anita, the complaint alleged.
