Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court adjourned till Friday hearing on the interim bail plea of former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, arrested in an alleged land scam case.
Justice B V Pinto on Thursday adjourned the hearing to October 24 initially but following the plea by Yeddyurappa's counsel, agreed to hear the matter on Friday.
Yeddyurappa had filed a bail application on Monday.
Facing imminent arrest, he had surrendered before the Lokayukta Court on Saturday last after it rejected his bail plea.
The Lokayukta court had on October 15 remanded Yeddyurappa to judicial custody till October 22 in cases relating to alleged irregularities in denotification of government lands.
Hours after he was remanded to judicial custody, 68-year-old Yeddyurappa had complained of uneasiness and chest pain in the wee hours and was rushed to Jayadeva hospital.
Yeddyurappa, shifted from the Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology to state run Victoria hospital on October18, had on Wednesday insisted that doctors discharge him, apparently upset over adverse media reports about his hospital hopping to avoid prison stay.
He was then taken back to the Parappana Agrahara jail in an ambulance after he insisted on receiving treatment in the prison itself.
