BANGALORE: There seems to be more trouble heading towards b s Yeddyurappa with the CEC asking for further inquiry into the “huge payments” made to the realty firms owned by his family from a mine lessee.

According to S R Hiremath of the Dharwad-based NGO Samaja Parivarthana Samudaya, who is the main petitioner in the writ plea filed before the Supreme Court on illegal mining in Karnataka, the case relates to the real estate companies owned by Yeddyurappa’s family members receiving Rs 6-crore kickbacks from Praveen Chandra after he was given 330 acres of mining lease in Chitradurga district.

Yeddyurappa had recommended mining lease for Chandra to the Union Mines Secretary and notified the grant of lease to the company in October 2010. In return, Bhagat Homes Pvt Ltd and Dhavalagiri Property Developers Pvt Ltd, owned by Yeddyurappa’s family, received Rs 2.5 crore and Rs 3.5 crore. The SC will hear the case on April 11.
