New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed
a petition seeking cancellation of bail granted to former
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa in one of the graft
cases.

A bench comprising Justices H L Dattu and C K Prasad said
it was "not inclined to interfere" with the Karnataka High
Court order granting bail to Yeddyurappa and others in a case
relating to land denotification.

The plea challenging the grant of bail to the former
chief minister was filed by Bangalore-based advocate Sirijan
Basha.

Basha has filed five complaints, comprising 15 cases, in
the Lokayukta court against Yeddyurappa and others including
his family members.

Former Solicitor General and senior advocate Gopal
Subramanian appeared for Basha before the apex court which
declined to accept his submission for cancellation of the
bail.

Justice B V Pinto of the High Court had granted bail to
Yeddyurappa who had moved against the special Lokayukta
court`s order rejecting his plea for the relief.

The cases have been registered by the Lokayukta police on
Basha`s complaints alleging Yeddyurappa had denotified
governments land for the benefit of his family members.
