However, uncertainty over the appointment of registrar of Lokayukta continued. Despite the High Court having recommended the name of district principal and sessions judge Gunaki Narendra Kumar Basavaraj as the Registrar, the state government put IAS officer C K Jaffer in this post.

Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee met acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee recently and said that the issue would be settled after a discussion with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, as the state government did not want confrontation with the judiciary. However, no decision was taken.

Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee was not available for comments.
