Reports also suggest that Yeddyurappa was not available when the Lokayukta police arrived at his residence with the arrest warrant.
The Lokayukta police said that they were clueless about Yeddyurappa's whereabouts.
Arrest warrant was issued against Yeddyurappa on Saturday, Oct 15 after his name was indicted in the land denotification scam in the Karnataka Lokayukta report.
Meanwhile, the court granted bail to Yeddyurappa's son and son-in-laws including the co-accused BJP members in the case.
Yeddyurappa has been accused of misusing his office during his tenure as the Chief Minister for denotifying government land in Rachenahalli in Bangalore South taluk which caused a loss of about Rs 40 crore to the state exchequer.
