Bangalore, Aug 29: Former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa's anticipatory bail has been rejected on Monday. The bail was rejected by the Karnataka High Court on the alleged land scam case.

He will now have to appear before the Lokayukta special court on Monday afternoon. He was to appear before the Lokayukta on Saturday, but was exempted from doing so after citing health issues. It was reported that he was suffering from diabetes, hypertension and high fever. He was admitted to the Sagar hospital on Saturday afternoon.  [Read: Yeddyurappa going the Kalmadi-way?]
