The Karnataka High Court has observed that the image and prestige of the judges and the post of the Governor has lowered by the alleged act of bribing a politically connected astrologer for securing the post of the Governor by a former Karnataka High Court judge.
The single judge bench of Justice K Natrajan denied the bail plea filed by the former judge of karnataka High Court, judge B S Indrakala and astrologer Yuvaraj Swami.
Swami was also accused of multiple cases for cheating politicians and businessman. He was arrested in December, 2020 for cheating these people of crores by promising them high position in the government.
The former judge Indrakala filed the complaint of being cheated against Swami after his arrest last year. According to her complaint, she has paid Rs. 8.5 crores to the astrologer.
