The High Court on Thursday ordered notices to advocate Sirajin Basha and the Lokayukta in connection with two appeals filed by former Chief Minister and KJP president B S Yeddyurappa seeking to quash two private complaints (PCR 5 and 6) registered against him.

The complaintes had accused Yeddyurappa of abusing power for pecuniary benefits during his tenure as CM. A division Bench of Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice B V Nagarathna directed the complainant and Lokayukta to file objections and adjourned the case for further hearing.

There are a total six private complaints filed against Yeddyurappa for alleged abuse of power for pecuniary benefits, out of which five complaints were filed by Basha.

Of these, two were challenged in the high court.

Directive to petitioners

The high court on Thursday asked petitioners Basant Kumar Patil, former president of the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, and others, to make their stand clear on withdrawing their petition challenging irregularities in presentation of the State film awards for 2010-11 by the government.

Justice Ram Mohan Reddy issued the direcion after the state government submitted that it will re-do the list of the state film awards announced for 2010-11.

Petitioners Patil and Kannada actor Priya Hassan had questioned the selection process as two members of the advisory board were associated with two films that were selected for the awards. The awards were announced on April 9, 2011 but not presented following a stay by the High Court.
