Yeddyurappa to be in jail till Nov 3
Except Yeddyurappa, all the other accused, including his sons B Y Raghavendra, a Lok Sabha member and B Y Vijayendra, who are on conditional bail, were present in the court. Jail authorities in their warrant said Yeddyurappa was not being produced in the court due to his ill health. Counsels for the other accused surrendered their passports to the court, which then directed the court office to keep them in sealed covers in safe custody.
The Lokayukta Court had issued summons to the accused in August on two of the five private complaints filed by advocate Sirajin Basha, regarding illegal denotification of government land for pecuniary gain. In both complaints, Yeddyurappa is the main accused.
