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.
