Mysuru, August 3:- Mysuru District Court has passed an arrest warrant against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader M Appanna in a cheque bounce case.
Appanna had given his flat at Diamond Enclave at Chamaraja Mohalla in the city on lease in 2008 to one T R Sumitra. He later agreed to sell the house to the same lady and had taken Rs 15 lakh advance from her.
Sumitra, a physically challenged woman, is a retired employee from the Judicial Department. When she came to know Appanna was not interested in selling the house to her, she asked him to return her money. Appanna gave her a cheque for Rs 15 lakh which bounced. She later filed a complaint at JMFC Court, which asked Appanna to pay the amount in three installments beginning August. He was supposed to pay the first installment in August but didn’t make any payment following which the court passed an order on Thursday. (MR/KS).
