Probe initiated; K'taka CM's kin surrender land

BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Nov 19: After the state cabinet ordered a judicial probe into allotment of land in the last ten years, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa's son and daughter surrendered land, which were allegedly illegally allotted to them.

Yeddyurappa faced huge pressure from the Opposition to resign from his ministerial post over the alleged land scam.

Government official sources informed that the CM's son Raghavendra and daughter Umadevi submitted a letter to the Bangalore development authority (BDA) surrendering the land allotted to them.

Two relatives of Yeddyurappa, who had been allotted sites by BDA, also surrendered those sites.

According some documents, Yeddyurappa's two sons Raghavendra and Vijayendra in 2006 bought land with a throw away price, but market value of those same land is Rs 500 crore.

Though his party BJP continued to give support to Yeddyurappa, but he is likely to move to the capital on Nov 20 after receiving summon from the center.
