BANGALORE: The High Court will pass its orders on a petition challenging the appointment of Justice Chandrashekariah as the Upalokayukta.
A division bench headed by Justice N Kumar started dictating orders in the case, which will continue on Tuesday as well.
The court will earlier pronounce its verdict on the matter.
It may be pertinent to note that two public interest litigations were filed in the High Court on February 13 challenging Justice Chandrashekaraiah’s appointment.
The petitioners, advocates Ananda Murty R and Janekere C Krishna, stated that his appointment was illegal according to section 3 sub clause 2 of the Lokayukta Act, 1984.
“The High Court Chief Justice ought to have been consulted for the appointment, which was crucial and was not done in this case,” they averred.
