Rao not only rejected Yeddyrrapa`s bail plea but also declined to exempt him from being present in the court on health grounds.

Former BJP minister for endowments (muzarai) Krishnaiah Shetty, who was also remanded in a week-long judicial custody along with Yeddyurappa is lodged in the Parpanna Agrahara jail as his bail plea was also rejected.
