Janata Dal Secular (JD-S) leader HD Kumaraswamy on Sunday broke his indefinite fast demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the allegations against him that he had amassed illegal wealth.

Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa made an appeal to the JD-S leader to call off his strike earlier in the day, as his indefinite fast had entered the second day.

According to reports, the Janata Dal Secular had called a meeting of its leaders on Sunday to discuss the situation arising out of Kumaraswamy's indefinite fast.
