Union Law and Justice Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, also a former chief minister of Karnataka, has landed in trouble, exactly like some of his predecessors in the state. Two persons have filed a complaint against Gowda and others in connection with sanction of 10 acres of gomala land to Mythic Society.

The complainants stated that the sanctioned land was part of 103 acres of gomala land. The market value of the land is about `3 crore per acre whereas the government value is about `60 lakh per acre.

The gomala land in Avalahalli village, near Yelahanka in Bengaluru North Taluk was sanctioned to Mythic Society when Gowda was the CM, as against five acres sought by MLA Viswanath for the society.
