The CCB chief said that Yuvraj had allegedly taken Rs 10 crore from an educationist-turned politician from north Karnataka by promising him to help procure a ticket to contest the upcoming Belagavi bye-elections.

The politician filed a complaint through a third party, who was also allegedly duped by Yuvraj, Times of India reported.
