The Karnataka High Court on Monday adjourned to June 2, hearing of the interim application praying for vacating the stay on the criminal proceedings against Chief Minister B. S. Yeddyurappa and his family members in a corruption case.

Justice Keshav Narayan adjourned the hearing of the interim application filed by Sirajin Basha, the city—based advocate who along with his associate K. N. Balaraj had filed a private complaint against Mr. Yeddyurappa and his family members.

The Supreme Court had on Apr 29 refused to quash a Karnataka High Court order which had stayed criminal proceedings against the Chief Minister and his family members in the corruption case.

The apex court however while dismissing the petition, asked the High Court to consider the application moved by the complainant, if any, for vacation of stay not later than six weeks.
