BANGALORE: The vacation bench of the Karnataka High Court on Friday refused to lift the interim stay on the Lokayukta investigation against former advocate general B V Acharya in connection with a complaint regarding irregularities in the BMS Educational Trust during admissions.

Justice Anand Byra Reddy dismissed a petition by the Lokayukta police requesting to vacate the stay on the investigation.

The Lokayukta court had allowed a complaint against BMS Educational Trust and ordered an investigation on April 21 and directed the Lokayukta police to submit a report on May 23.

Acharya filed a petition seeking stay on the investigation against him, following which the stay was ordered.

It was alleged that crores of rupees were collected without accounts under the management quota as donation, in addition to filling up vacancies in various categories by admitting ineligible candidates.

Apart from Acharya, the others accused in the case are the trust’s member appointed by the government H U Talwar, member secretary B S Ragini Narayan, Dr P Dayananda Pai and former additional chief secretary Vijay Gore.
