Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde will submit his much-awaited report on illegal mining to the government on Wednesday.

“Yes, I will submit the report on Wednesday,” Mr. Hegde, a former Supreme Court Judge and member of Jan Lokpal Bill Drafting Committee, told PTI here on Monday.

Lokayukta sources said much of the findings are already in the public domain as the report was leaked.

The report has indicted Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and four Ministers, among others, and pegged the loss to the State exchequer because of illegal mining between March 2009 and April 2010 at more than Rs. 1,800 crore.
