BS Yeddyurappa in trouble, bribery charges to be probed?


BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Mar 30: A probe into the charges levelled against former tainted Chief Minister of Karnataka, BS Yeddyurappa's family who received Rs 6 crore from a mining firm needs to be probed, said the supreme court panel.

The recommendation was submitted to the apex court in New Delhi by the central empowered committee to look into the illegal mining and bribery-related cases in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

Talking over the issue, the son of Yeddyurappa, BY Vijayendra said that the amount received is not kickback money from the firm but loan.

It is alleged that Praveen Chandra, a mine operator by profession had given a firm run by RN Sohan Kumar, Yeddyurappa's son-in-law, Rs 2.5 crore and Rs 3.5 crore to another firm owned by Vijayendra and his brother BY Raghavendra.

The allegation was levelled by Samaaja Parivarthana Samudaya, an NGO, which sought a CBI probe into the matter.

Meanwhile, the supreme court will decide on Friday whether the charges levelled against Yeddyurappa need to be investigated.

Vijayendra also insisted that his father had not granted any licence to Chandra.

"After the central government's recommendation, the state government has passed final notification order on Oct 12, 2010," he said.
