Bangalore: Karnataka High Court today allowed the Lokayukta Police probe against BJP National Vice-President B S Yeddyurappa and others, on a petition challenging the Lokayukta Court order dismissing complaints against them in a land denotification case in Shimoga district.

Justice Anand Byrareddy set aside the Shimoga Lokayukta Court order which had dismissed complaints against Yeddyurappa and his son and MLA B Y Raghavendra accusing them of purchasing land through illegal means, and ordered Lokayukta Police to initiate an inquiry into the matter.

The Lokayukta Court had dismissed the complaints against Yeddyurappa and others filed by B Vinod, a Shimoga-based advocate, on the grounds that he had not availed himself of sanction from the Governor for prosecution prior to filing the complaint.
