Senior BJP leader BS Yediyurappa, facing a POCSO charge, returned to Bengaluru on Saturday and said he will appear before the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on June 17 for questioning. The former CM returned a day after the Karnataka High Court had restrained the CID from arresting him in connection with the POCSO case. It also directed the veteran BJP leader to appear before CID, which is probing the case, on June 17.


Addressing reporters here, Yediyurappa said, “I had gone to Delhi for a pre-scheduled programme. I had informed in advance in writing that I will appear for an inquiry on June 17.  The High Court has given an order restraining CID (from arresting). I’m appearing for an inquiry on Monday. Unnecessarily some tried to create confusion, I don’t want to blame anyone, everyone knows the fact.”



“...people will teach a lesson to those indulging in conspiracies,” he said. The victim’s mother, who had levelled the charge against Yediyurappa, died at a private hospital here last month, due to lung cancer. Earlier this week, the victim’s brother had moved the court alleging that though the case was registered on March 14, no progress has been made in the investigation. The petitioner prayed the court for a direction to the police to arrest Yediyurappa and interrogate him.


After the Sadashivanagar police registered the case in March, the Karnataka Director General of Police Alok Mohan had issued an order transferring it to the CID for further investigation. A court here on Thursday had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Yediyurappa in the case registered against him under the POCSO Act on March 14 this year. In April, the CID collected the voice sample of Yediyurappa after summoning him to the office.
