In a great relief to former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, the state High Court granted him an anticipatory bail to him Wednesday.

Justice, H Billapa of the court agreed to Yeddyurappa's bail plea on the condition that he furnishes a bond of Rs. 2 lakh and two sureties of the same amount.

The 68-year-old BJP leader was in Bangalore's Central Jail for 21 days. Earlier, he had secured bail in two of the five private complaints of alleged corruption and illegal denotification of government lands.

Yeddyurappa's counsel Sandeep Patil said that there was no question of judicial custody in the two cases in respect of his client.

Meanwhile, Justice Billapa also granted bail to Yeddyurappa's two sons, Lok Sabha member B Y Raghavendra and B Y Vijayendra, and his son-in-law R N Sohan Kumar. They arrested in two cases filed against them in the Lokayukta special court.

The five cases of corruption and illegal land deals against Yeddyurappa and his family were filed by two advocates Sirajin Basha and K N Balaraj in January, 2011.
