Court rejects graft probe plea against B S Yediyurappa.


A special court in Bengaluru hearing matters related to elected representatives has rejected a private complaint seeking a probe into alleged corruption and money laundering by Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, members of his family and others on account of the state Governor rejecting the sanction sought by the complainant for prosecution of the chief minister.

Social activist T J Abraham filed the private complaint against the CM and others, seeking directions to file an FIR under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

A special court for matters related to elected representatives ruled on Thursday that the complaint was “not maintainable in the absence of valid sanction”.
