BANGALORE: Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and his family members appeared before the Lokayukta Court, a day after it ordered issue of non-bailable warrants against them on two illegal land denotification cases.

Yeddyurappa, his two sons B Y Raghavendra, B Y Vijayendra, son-in-law Sohan Kumar and former Housing Minister Krishnaiah Setty filed applications before Lokayukta Judge N K Sudhindra Rao for recall of the NBWs, which was considered and the warrants recalled.
