Former Karnataka CM Yeddyurappa arrested

Former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa arrest as he surrendered before a local court after he was denied bail in two cases of corruption. He was arrested and sent to jail. Yeddyurappa, the Bharatiya Janata Party's first chief minister in south India, quit in July over graft charges. He was jailed  after a trial court rejected his bail plea in two cases of corruption and ordered his arrest. He has been sent to Judicial custody till October 22.
The Karnataka BJP issued a statement on Saturday saying that Yeddyurappa would move higher court against the Lokayukta court warrant. The Lokayukta Court asked the police to produce Yeddyurappa before the court on Tuesday. Yeddyurappa can seek bail on Tuesday or he can challenge it before the high court. Reacting to the development, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said that it showed the double standard of the BJP. "A bail is denied only when court finds some case against a person. This is the CM who was reluctant to leave office and when he left, made a lot of noise," said Singhvi.
