A fresh case had cropped up on Thursday where it was alleged that BSY had accepted a bribe of Rs 13 crore for awarding contracts to a private firm in the Upper Bhadra irrigation project.
The other high profile inmate in jail along with BSY, and his former cabinet colleague Katta Subramanya Naidu will also seek bail in High Court regarding the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board scam. His bail plea will be heard on Friday as well.
Yeddyurappa had earlier withdrawn his interim bail plea and had to spent Diwali in jail. His lawyers had gone ahead to pursue a regular bail for their client. The former CM had to step down from his post after being named in the Lokayukta report on illegal mining. The state government is yet to decide on the action to be taken on the Lokayukta report.
It is believed that a total of five cases are in Yeddyurappa's name in the Lokayukta court.
