Fresh trouble seems to be brewing for KJP President B S Yeddyurappa as the State government has ordered a CID probe into an alleged incident of forgery of documents related to the denotification of more than 1.1 acres of prime urban land in Bangalore city when he was the Chief Minister.
The government has ordered a CID probe into a complaint filed by the Urban Development Department with the Vidhana Soudha police seeking investigation into the incident.
According to official sources, the land related to survey number 30/6B (30 guntas) and another 1.11 guntas in the survey number 31/1 at Rupena Agrahara in Bangalore South taluk had been denotified in 2010.
The land was acquired by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) long ago and reportedly, the Congress government in 2000, had rejected a petition seeking denotification of the land.
However, the same land was denotified in 2010, despite the objection raised by the senior officials of Urban Development Department. Then it lodged a complaint and an FIR had been registered by the police recently.
A circular was issued by the Under Secretary to the Home Department. The copies of the circular are available with Express. The circular has directed the concerned officials to cooperate with the CID sleuths in its investigation into the alleged fraud incident.
Home Department officials had also directed the CID to complete the probe and submit a report to the government at the earliest.
