Petition in SC against HC relief to Karnataka CM, family members
New Delhi: A petition was on Monday filed in the
Supreme Court challenging the order of the Karnataka High
Court staying the direction of a trial court taking cognisance
of the offences against Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa and his
family members in a complaint case relating to irregularities
in denotification of land.
Sirajin Basha, an advocate, who is the main complainant
in the case, filed the special leave petition through advocate
Prashant Kumar against the March 29 interim order of the High
Court which had allowed the petition filed by Yeddyurappa`s
son-in-law Sohan Kumar.
Kumar had challenged the lower court order for further
proceedings, including the Lokyukta probe, against them.
There are five complaints filed against the Chief
Minister`s family members and the Governor had accorded
sanction to prosecute for offences committed under IPC Section
405 (criminal breach of trust) and under provisions of the
Prevention of Corruption Act.
The Additional Civil and Sessions Judge had on March 24
postponed prosecution in the complaint and ordered Lokayukta
police to probe the matter and submit the final report of the
inquiry by May 4.
