Bengaluru: In February this year, Mr Yeddyurappa had alleged that the Congress government in the state was paying its high command and the details were mentioned in a diary seized by IT sleuths from the house of a Congress MLC. As a counter, the Congress released a CD, in which Mr Yeddyurappa and Mr Kumar were seen discussing that even they had given money to the BJP central leadership. Congress leaders later filed a complaint with the police, requesting for an investigation.
The Cyber Crime police, who had registered a case, had summoned the duo to give voice samples, but they did not turn up. The police had moved the court, which directed the two leaders to cooperate with the investigation. In September, the police sent both the original CD and voice samples of Mr Yeddyurappa and Mr Kumar to the FSL.
