Bangalore, Oct 17 (IANS) Former Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, arrested in connection with two corruption cases, may be back in jail Tuesday as he has no heart ailment, doctors indicated Monday.

On Tuesday, his pleas for bail will also be heard by the Karnataka High Court.

“Angiogram done Monday shows no blockage in his heart. He will be discharged Tuesday,” Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research director C. N. Manjunath told reporters here.

Yeddyurappa was brought to the Jayadeva Institute early Sunday as he complained of chest pain within hours of being lodged in Bangalore’s main jail in eastern suburb Parappana Agrahara Saturday evening.

Manjunath said Yeddyurappa needs treatment for back pain, diabetes and other minor ailments.

Yeddyurappa was on Saturday sent to judicial custody till Oct 22 by special Lokayukta court judge N.K. Sudhindra Rao in two of five cases of corruption and illegal land deals filed by two Bangalore advocates in Januaray this year.

The advocates, Sirajin Bhasha and N. K. Balaraj, have charged Yeddyurappa, his two sons - BJP Lok Sabha member B. Y. Raghavendra and B. Y. Vijayendra, son-in-law R. Sohan Kumar, - of conspiracy to denotify government land in return for monetary gains.

Former state Muzrai (endowments) minister S.N. Krishnaiah Shetty, BJP legislator Hemachanda Sagar and several others are also accused in the cases.

Rao has given conditional bail to all the accused, except Yeddyurappa and Shetty, who too has moved the high court for bail.
