The Karnataka High Court on Friday adjourned till June 18 the hearing on former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's anticipatory bail petition in connection to an illegal mining case.
The court also adjourned the hearing on the anticipatory bail petitions filed by Yeddyurappa's sons BY Raghavendra and BY Vijayendra and son-in-law RN Sohan Kumar.
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday filed a statement of objections before the court stating that granting bail to the senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and his family members will affect the impartial probe into the case.
A special CBI court earlier this week rejected the anticipatory bail of Yeddyurappa.
The court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea and said granting bail to the senior BJP leader might go against the witnesses connected to the case.
The anticipatory bail petitions of Yeddyurappa's sons and son-in-law were also dismissed.
The CBI on May raided the Bangalore residence of former Yeddyurappa as part of a probe into the alleged illegal mining case.
