Bangalore: The Lokayukta Court on Friday adjourned to tomorrow arguments on the bail application filed by former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa in one of the complaints alleging irregularities in denotification of government land by him.

Lokayukta Special Court judge Justice N K Sudhindra Rao adjourned hearing on the application filed by Yeddyurappa in the private complaint in which nine others including his sons, B Y Vijayendra, B Y Raghavendra, son-in-law, Sohan Kumar, former housing minister Krishnaiah Setty and sitting MLA, Hemachandra Sagar, are the accused.

When court commenced proceedings applications for exemption from personal appearance were filed by counsel for Yeddyurappa and Raghavendra which was granted.

Senior counsel representing Yeddyurappa, Ravi B Naik submitted "Every denotification cannot become an offence especially under the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act. I request the court not to draw an analogy which becomes baseless in future," he said.
