Former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa

The Lokayukta court on Saturday extended the judicial custody of former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa till November 3.

Yeddyurappa was arrested on October 15 following charges related to alleged irregularities in denotification of government land.

The former chief minister was arrested and sent to Parappana Agrahara jail after the Lokayukta special rejected his bail plea. He was admitted to a hospital on the very next day after he complained of chest pain. However, he returned to jail on October 19 after he was discharged from the hospital.

Earlier this year, Bangalore advocates Sirajin Bhasha and NK Balaraj filed case against Yeddyurappa, his two sons BY Raghavendra and BY Vijayendra and son-in-law R Sohan Kumar for the irregularities in land denotification.

The Karnataka High Court had earlier adjourned the hearing of his interim bail plea till October 24.
