Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court will hear the bail pleas of former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, arrested in connection with two corruption cases, on Tuesday. Lawyers for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader filed two petitions in the court Monday, one for interim bail and another for regular bail, and requested they be heard Tuesday.

Justice BV Pinto agreed to the request.

Though arrested on Saturday and sent to judicial custody till Oct 22, the 68-year-old Yeddyurappa spent only a few hours behind bars at the Bangalore's mail jail in Parappana Agrahara, an eastern suburb.

He was shifted from jail early Sunday to Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research after he complained of chest pain.

The institute's director CN Manjunath has appointed a team of five doctors to monitor Yeddyurappa's health. An angiogram is likely to be conducted later Monday to determine whether he has heart problems or is suffering from complications arising out of diabetics and blood pressure.

The former Chief Minister was arrested after special Lokayukta court judge N Sudhindra Rao declined bail Saturday in two of the five cases corruption and illegal land deals filed against Yeddyurappa by two Bangalore advocates.

The advocates, Sirajin Bhasha and NK Balaraj, have charged Yeddyurappa, his two sons -- BJP Lok Sabha member BY Raghavendra and BY Vijayendra -- and son-in-law R Sohan Kumar of conspiracy to denotify government land in return for monetary gains.

Former state Muzrai (endowments) Minister SN Krishnaiah Shetty, BJP legislator Hemachanda Sagar and several others are also accused in the cases.

Rao has given conditional bail to all the accused, except Yeddyurappa and Shetty, who too has moved the High Court for bail.
