The High Court on Thursday quashed a private complaint against former Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda and his wife Datty before a Lokayukta special court.

Justice H N Nagamohan Das quashed further proceedings against Gowda and his wife as the complainant had failed to obtain necessary sanction from the competent authority, in this case, the governor. Sadananda Gowda was the chief minister at the time complaint was filed.

The court, however, gave liberty to the petitioner Nagalakshmi Bai to approach the competent authority for the sanction and file the petition afresh. The complaint against Gowda and his wife was in connection with the purchase of 8.5 acres of gomala land in Bagalur in 2008 by allegedly submitting fake documents as 7.5 acres was part of the 29 acre earmarked for SCs and STs by the government.

PIL Admitted

The High Court on Thursday considered a petition as a PIL seeking to restrain controversial evangelist Benny Hinn from conducting a prayer meeting in city from January 15 to 19. The court registry has listed the matter before the Chief Justice on Friday.
