3 More Special Courts For Lokayukta Cases

BENGALURU:  Taking serious note of the High Court’s observations on inordinate delay in trial of corruption cases, the state government has designated three more courts for Bengaluru Urban, in addition to the existing special court, to clear pending cases.
On Friday, Additional Advocate General A S Ponnanna informed Justice A N Venugopala Gowda that on February 10 the government notified three more courts to conduct the trial of Lokayukta cases. 
Justice Gowda, who is hearing a corruption case wherein the trial was delayed, directed the authorities to fill the posts of non-gazetted officers, required in these courts.
He also directed the Registrar of Lokayukta to appear before the court on March 8 as action needs to be taken regarding the investigation and prosecution wings of Lokayukta.
