The Advocates' Association, Bengaluru (AAB) has written to the Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud on March 7 expressing concern over what they alleged as preferential listing of the anticipatory bail application filed by Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Madal Virupakshappa before the Karnataka High Court. .Virupakshappa, who is facing corruption charges, was granted anticipatory bail by the High Court on March 7, Tuesday.The AAB in its letter stated that new cases including anticipatory bail applications takes weeks before they are listed. However, VIP matters are being entertained overnight and this would lead to common man losing faith in judicial system."This practice would lead to common man losing faith in the judicial system. It is of utmost importance that a MLA also should be treated as a common man," the letter said. The AAB also appealed to the Chief Justice of Karnataka to direct the registry to post all anticipatory bail matters in one day including those filed so that the common man is treated as a VIP..Virupakshappa moved the High Court seeking anticipatory bail in a case filed against him by the Lokayukta police.The case was filed based on a complaint by one Shreyas Kashyap against Virupakshappa and his son Prashanth Madal, who owns a partnership company called Chemicals Corporation in Bengaluru.The complaint was filed by Kashyap after having successfully participated in the tender process in January 2023 to supply chemical oil to Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited (KSDL), where the MLA is the chairman.Kashyap complained to the Lokayukta Police that the MLA and his son, had demanded a bribe of ₹81 lakh to release the mandate and money.Prashanth, who is the Joint Controller of the State Accounts Department, was occupying the post of Chief Accountant in the Bengaluru Jal Board.Lokayukta Police conducted a raid and arrested five people including Prashanth, while the contractor was delivering a ₹40 lakh bribe to a private office on Crescent Road in Kumara Park.On March 4, a special court in Bengaluru remanded the five to fourteen days of judicial custody.
