In a surprising move, a flying squad of the Election Commission, today, checked the luggage of former Karnataka Chief Minister and state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa, when he was boarding a helicaptor in Shivamogga.
When the helicopter is about to depart, the team rushed it and checked the bags he was carrying. At that time, already Yeddyurappa was boarded.
The Income Tax Department and the Election Commission have been conducting a series pre-poll raids on several top leaders in Karnataka.
Meanwhile, the I-T department also conducted raids on premises of close aids of Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy in Mandya, Hassan and Bengaluru.
Earlier this month, Kumaraswamy’s vehicle was also stopped for checking by the poll body flying squad.
