Karnataka’s CM son-in-law moves HC for quashing of lower court order
Sohan Kumar moved the Karnataka High Court seeking quashment of a lower court order of taking cognisance of the offences made out against the BJP leader and his family members in four complaints.
Bangalore: Sohan Kumar, son-in-law of
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, today moved the
Karnataka High Court seeking quashment of a lower court order
of taking cognisance of the offences made out against the BJP
leader and his family members in four complaints.
The fresh batch of applications were filed before the High
Court a day after it granted interim stay on the lower court
order which had taken cognisance of offences mentioned in the
first complaint against Yeddyurappa and his family members and
ordered a probe by the Lokayukta police.
Kumar has filed three applications challenging the order of
the 23rd Additional Civil and Sessions court which had ordered
the Lokayukta probe on March 24.
Akka Mahadevi, named as one of the accused in one of the
complaints, has also moved the High Court with a similar plea.
The petitions are yet to be listed for hearing.
The complaints were filed by two city-based advocates,
Sirajin Basha and K N Balaraj, accusing Yeddyurappa and his
family members of indulging in irregularities in
denotification of lands acquired by Bangalore Development
Authority (BDA) and sought their prosecution under the
provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.
