The high court on Wednesday issued notice to Lokayukta police on a bail petition filed by former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa in connection with a private complaint in the Lokayukta Special Court filed by Alam Pasha, MD of Pasha Space International.
Former minister Murugesh Nirani and others are also accused for illegally ordering cancellation of an industrial site on the basis of a forged signature. Justice Anand Byrareddy issued the notice and adjourned the case till Friday.
In the complaint, Pasha alleged that the government had approved his proposal for a `600 crore project which envisaged construction of value homes for middle and lower income groups. The government had also directed the KIADB to allot 26 acres of land in Devanahalli industrial area in July 2010, said the complainant.
The high court dismissed an application filed by BBMP corporator of Azadnagar ward, C G Gowramma, seeking to drop criminal charges against her.
Earlier, amicus curiae Hashmath Pasha said a probe revealed that Gowaramma, a day before murder of RTI activist Lingaraju, had pledged `20 lakh worth of jewellery with a cooperative bank to give supari to kill Lingaraju and investigative officers had even recovered the money from the accused.
The counsel for Gowramma said all the allegations were false. The bench, however, dismissed the plea.
