The special CBI court has rejected the anticipatory bail plea filed by former Karnataka Chief Minister of Karnataka B S Yeddyurappa. Yeddyurappa who is being probed by the CBI for his alleged role in illegal mining had sought anticipatory bail apprehending arrest.
Yeddyurappa’s legal team advanced arguments for nearly a week stating that the CBI ought not to arrest him. They submitted that he will available for questioning as and when the CBI needed him.
The CBI on the other submitted that he ought to be arrested after a mandatory round of questioning. They said that being a former CM he is a very powerful person and could well tamper with the evidence.
With this order an arrest stares at the face of Yeddyurappa. He is likely to be summoned for questioning and could be arrested based on the manner in which he faces the probe or cooperates with the investigation.
