Relief for BS Yediyurappa, SC puts on hold corruption case

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde also issued notice to the state on his plea for quashing of the case.

The Supreme Court on Monday stayed a Karnataka High Court order that had restored the decade-old “land de-notification corruption case” against Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.


Last month, the Karnataka High Court had directed a special court to take cognisance of offences against him, and proceed further on the basis of charge sheet filed by the Lokayukta Police in 2012.


Ating on an appeal filed by the Chief Minister against the high court order, a Bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde also issued notice to the state on his plea for quashing of the case.


The private complaint against Yediyurppa had alleged that during his tenure as the Chief Minister from 2008-12, he illegally de-notified 20 acres from land acquisition proceedings to give undue favours to private parties.
