Senior BJP leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has been summoned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for questioning in a Protection of Children from Sexual Offence (POCSO) case, sources revealed on Wednesday.


Yediyurappa, currently in Delhi, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl during a meeting in February, a charge he vehemently denies.

The investigation was handed over to the CID following a complaint by the girl’s mother. The case has intensified with the recent death of the complainant from lung cancer. Yediyurappa has stated his intention to contest the charges legally.
