New Delhi, September 23
The Supreme Court on Friday stayed proceedings against former Karnataka chief minister and senior BJP leader BS Yediyurappa in an alleged corruption case.
A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli issued notice to the private complainant on a plea challenging the Karnataka High Court order restoring the complaint against Yediyurappa and others.
"There shall be a stay of proceedings so far as the petitioner is concerned," the bench said.
The Karnataka High Court on September 7 had restored a private complaint against Yediyurappa and his family. The complainant had accused him of taking bribe for awarding government contracts.
A sessions court had earlier dismissed a plea seeking a probe into the allegations of corruption against Yediyurappa as the then governor had refused to sanction it.
