The Supreme Court on Friday stayed proceedings against former Karnataka Chief Minister and senior BJP leader BS Yediyurappa in a case of alleged corruption. A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli issued notice to the private complainant on a plea challenging the Karnataka High Court order to restore the complaint against Yeddyurappa and others.
“So far as the petitioner is concerned, the proceedings shall be stayed,” the bench said. The Karnataka High Court had on 7 September restored a private complaint against Yeddyurappa and his family members. The complainant had accused him of taking bribe to award government contracts.
The sessions court had earlier dismissed a petition seeking a probe into the corruption allegations against Yeddyurappa as the then governor refused to grant it. Social activist TJ Abraham had filed a complaint alleging that Yediyurappa and his family members had received bribes from Ramalingam Construction Company and other shell companies in return for awarding Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) contracts.
