Karnataka High Court refuses to drop land de-notification case against CM BS Yediyurappa; takes dim view of attempt to withdraw complaint

The Court took serious note of the "unscrupulous, immoral and unholy nexus" between the Chief Minister and the complainant, who had sought to withdraw his complaint on flimsy grounds.

In what may be seen as another setback to Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday refused to quash a First Information Report (FIR) filed against him in relation to the illegal land de-notification case he is allegedly involved in [BS Yediyurappa v. State of Karnataka].

The Court imposed Rs 25,000 as costs upon Yediyurappa, while hearing the plea moved by him in 2017.
