Bengaluru: Former High Court judge Justice P Vishwanath Shetty is all set to become Karnataka’s new Lokayukta with Governor Vajubhai R Vala finally giving his assent to his appointment.

The Governor has given his assent to the appointment of Justice P Vishwanath Shetty as Lokayukta, CMO officials said.

Earlier, the Governor had returned the file seeking some clarifications, reportedly following allegations that Shetty’s family owned sites in violation of norms.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had said the government would respond to the clarifications sought by the Governor and had ruled out suggesting any other name for the post.

The post of Karnataka Lokayukta has been vacant for more than a year now following the resignation of Y Bhaskar Rao in December 2015 over an alleged bribery scandal involving his office and son.
