By The Assam Tribune

BANGALORE, Oct 15 � Facing imminent arrest, former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today surrendered before a Lokayukta court here and was sent to jail for a week after he was issued an arrest warrant in connection with alleged land scams, reports PTI.

On a day of high drama, the 68-year-old BJP leader, who resigned as Chief Minister on July 31 in the wake of his indictment by the Lokayukta in illegal mining scam, turned up in the court even as a team of police officials went to his house for arresting him.

Yeddyurappa is the first former chief minister of Karnataka to go to jail and the development has come as a major embarassment to BJP whose leader L K Advani is on a countrywide campaign against corruption.
