The Lokayukta Court on Friday ordered the Lokayukta Police to dig deeper to ascertain the veracity of the allegation that the former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and his sons illegally de-reserved 250 acres of land in the Bhadra Tiger reserve.

Judge N.K. Sudhindra Rao, who had ordered a probe into the allegations on July 27 based on a private complaint by lawyer-activist B. Vinod, ordered the anti-corruption agency’s Deputy Superintendent of Police Abdul Ahad to conduct a “comprehensive investigation” and submit a report by August 31.

In his first report, which was submitted recently, Mr. Ahad had attached certified documents to the court that substantiated some of the allegations levelled by Mr. Vinod. Satisfied with the documentary evidence, the court told the officer to continue with the inquiry and interrogate witnesses and sources.

In his complaint, Mr. Vinod had also produced documents to show that Mr. Yeddyurappa had denotified 69 acres of land in Bhadravati.

This land was subsequently sold to Dhavalgiri Properties owned by Mr. Yeddyurappa’s family members.
