Bangalore: Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj
Thursday accepted the resignation Upa Lokayukta R Gururajan, who
quit the post citing personal and health reasons.

The resignation has been accepted with effect from today, a
Raj Bhavan communique said here.

Gururajan`s resignation yesterday has left the three-member
anti-corruption watchdog with only one Upa Lokayukta Justice S
B Majige.

Lokayukta Shivraj Patil, who succeeded former supreme court
judge Santosh Hegde in August, had quit last month following a
controversy that he and his wife owned plots in the city in
violation of rules.
