Bengaluru: The petition filed by CM BS Yeddyurappa’s political secretary NR Santosh seeking to quash the charge sheet filed against him in relation to a conspiracy hatched to kidnap NS Vinay, advisor to Rural Development Panchayatraj Minister KS Eshwarappa, over controversial CD row was rejected by Karnataka High Court.

Justice HP Sandesh, while dismissing the criminal petition filed by Santosh, who is accused No.1. said, “I do not find any force in the contention of the counsel of the petitioner that the proceedings initiated against him has to be quashed and cannot be accepted the other contention of the accused that the trial judge has not applied his mind in issuing a summons.”

Santosh, who worked as the private secretary to Yeddyurappa when he was BJP state president, was charged with hatching a conspiracy with others to kidnap Vinay, who was the advisor of the then Opposition Leader in Legislative Council KS Eshwarappa.

It was alleged that a kidnap attempt was made to snatch the CD, pen drive, laptop, and screenshot having chatted with Vinay, which was in his mobile phone.
