The Lokayukta court on Saturday adjourned to January 24 three cases against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and some of his family members over alleged irregularities in awarding contracts for an irrigation project and denotification of lands.

Besides Mr Yeddyurappa, his son B Y Vijendra, son-in-law Sohan Kumar and other accused appeared in court, but his other son Raghavendra, a Lok Sabha member, was absent.
