New Delhi: Karnataka High Court has questioned the state government for permitting Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s son BY Vijayendra and his wife to travel from Bengaluru to Mysuru district in order to visit a temple, which amounts to the violation of lockdown norms.
Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, Karnataka has been placed under lockdown till May 24 and inter-district travel other than for emergency reasons is not allowed.
On Thursday, the court was apprised about Vijayendra’s visit to the temple by advocate GR Mohan. The memo submitted to the court contained media clippings of the news in both English and Kannada and also representations sent to the Mysuru DC’s and Myuru Police Commissioner’s office.
The court raised objections over the same and asked the state government to respond on the matter on the next date of hearing, which has been fixed for May 25.
