HC adjourns hearing on Yeddyurappa's petition

Bangalore: Karnataka High Court on Monday adjourned to Tuesday hearing on the petition filed by former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa seeking quashing of the two corruption cases filed against him.

Justice Anand Byrareddy adjourned the matter when the petition came up for hearing before him.

Responding to the arguments put forward by senior counsel for the petitioner Jayakumar S Patil on January 6, respondent advocate Sirajin Basha's counsel Nitin said sanction for prosecution need not be accorded for each and every offence.

It is in connection with these two corruption cases out of the five filed by Basha that the Lokayukta Court had ordered issue of summons against Yeddyurappa on August 8 last year which subsequently led to his arrest.
