Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court
on Monday reserved orders on petitions challenging the February 26
Lokayukta special court order to probe allegations of land
scams against Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa and others.
Justice KN Keshavanarayana, who heard both sides of
the arguments which concluded here, reserved pronouncement of
the orders in the matter.
Sohan Kumar, son-in-law of Yeddyurappa and others had
filed the petitions, challenging the orders of a designated
Lokayukta court that took cognisance of offences against
Yeddyurappa and others relating to land deals.
The high court had stayed the proceedings before the
Special Lokayukta court on March 29.
Meanwhile advocate Sirajin Basha, on whose private
complaint the Lokayukta court had initiated proceedings,
approached the high court praying for vacating the stay
granted by it on the case.
The Supreme Court which dismissed Basha`s petition
challenging the stay, had directed him to approach the high
court and the court to decide the matter within six weeks.
