Bangalore: Karnataka High Court on Friday extended
by four weeks the stay on the functioning of the one-man
Commission of inquiry appointed to probe alleged land scams.
A Division Bench comprising Chief J S Khehar and Justice A
S Bopanna issued notice to the B Padmaraj Commission to file
its objections within three weeks.
The bench ordered the Commission not to record any evidence
or submit any report to the government on the issue till it
gives its verdict.
The bench was hearing a petition filed by JDS leader Y S V
Datta, who had sought a direction that only Lokayukta should
investigate into the allegations of irregularities in the
allotment and denotification of land by Karnataka Industrial
Area Development Board and Bangalore Development Authority.
