Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday
posted for May 24 hearing of a plea praying for vacating the
stay on criminal proceedings against Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa and his family members in a corruption case.

Justice B Manohar adjourned to May 24 hearing of the
interim application filed by Sirajin Basha, an advocate who
along with his associate KN Balaraj had filed a private
complaint against Yeddyurappa and his family members.

The Supreme court had on April 29 refused to quash a
Karnataka High Court order which stayed criminal proceedings
against Yeddyurappa and his family members in the case.

A division bench comprising Justices V S Sirpurkar and TS
Thakur dismissed the petition filed by the advocates
challenging the stay by the High Court against a trial court
order which had taken cognisance of the complaint filed
against the Chief Minister and his family.

While dismissing the petition, the bench, however, asked
the High Court to consider the application moved by the
complainant, if any, for vacation of the stay not later than
six weeks.
