An FIR was filed against the BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa by the Karnataka Lokayukta today in an alleged case of illegal land denotification. Lokayukta also filed an FIR against JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy in the same case.

Ironically, both the leaders have served the state as Chief Ministers in the past.

The RTI documents revealed that both the leaders have been made, respectively, the number one and number two accused in the case.

Yeddyurappa and the leaders are accused of denotifying a prime plot to benefit Kumaraswamy’s relative.

According to a news report, “The CID had held a preliminary inquiry on the findings of a Comptroller and Auditor General of India report of 2012 on land de-notification carried out by the successive governments from 2007-12 and had recently submitted its report to the Lokayukta.”

The report said the accused have prima facie played a stellar role in denotifying huge tracts of land, causing a financial loss to the exchequer, Lokayukta said.

The de-notification of 610 acres and 16.5 acres of land referred to in the CAG report was ordered when Kumaraswamy and Yeddyurappa were the chief ministers of Karnataka.
