iron ore mining mess - CBI files charge sheet against Mr Yeddyurappa, kins and others

CBI on Tuesday filed its charge sheet against former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa for allegedly granting undue favours in return for donations to a charitable trust run by his kin and thereby causing a loss of INR 890 crore to the exchequer.

In its charge sheet filed before special CBI court, the agency named as accused Mr Yeddyurappa, his sons Mr BY Vijayendra and Mr BY Raghavendra, his son in law Mr RN Sohan Kumar and others

CBI sources said the accused have been booked under IPC sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy) read with 109 (Abetment), 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery), 471 (forging of documents) besides relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act and Section 9 read with Section 4 of Karnataka Land (Restriction on) Transfer Act related to illegal mining.

Describing the conspiracy, CBI alleged that during 2006-10, the then Karnataka chief minister Mr Yeddyurappa’s kin Mr Vijayendra, Mr Raghavendra and Mr Sohan Kumar, in violation of laws, purchased a land in Bangalore for INR 40 lakh which was notified for acquisition by the state government. The land was denotified from acquisition by Mr Yeddyurappa in an alleged abuse of his official position in violation of various rules. The agency alleged that the land was later sold at exorbitant rates of INR 20 crore even though the guidance value of the land was INR 1.5 crore
