Notices issued over mosque on drain 28.10.2016 deccanherald.com
The High Court on Friday ordered issuance of notice to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike, the Karnataka Slum Development Board and Masjid-o-Madrasa Noor-E-Elahi Trust in a PIL seeking stay on the construction of a mosque on a stormwater drain.

The petitioners, Pushparaj and others, have contended that the mosque trust has been constructing the mosque building on the retaining wall of the drain.

25 acres of govt land reclaimed by razing down shops, shanties 2.7.2016 deccanherald.com
A portion of Pantharapalya near Avalahalli on the Outer Ring Road in west Bengaluru looked ravaged as if has been hit by a powerful tremor as the Bengaluru Urban district authorities on Saturday carried out an extensive anti-encroachment drive to reclaim 25 acres of government land after a legal battle of 57 years. Officials with a contingent of about 300 policemen, 100 gangmen and 20 earthmovers swooped down at Pantharapalya in the morning and bulldozed hundreds of structures including shops, garages, welding shops, a refill gas cylinder distribution agency of Indane, warehouses and a large number of shanties. The open space was used for parking hundreds of private vehicles. There was a strong resistance by shopkeepers and slum dwellers. But they could not muster courage to continue their protest due to the heavy police presence. As the drive extended to the shanties, the slum dwellers stood in front of the earthmovers, preventing the authorities to proceed further. The residents said they have been ...

The High Court has censured the Karnataka Slum Development Board for building houses for slum dwellers on a land that was originally allotted for the campus of Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences. Hearing a petition by the institute, acting Chief Justice S KMukherjee remarked: "How can you allow this to happen? The government cannot have slums on Commercial Street and MG Road. You cannot demolish houses and set up structures for slum dwellers. You are encouraging people in illegality and encroachment. Find out the alternative. Ask the people to vacate and those who refuse to vacate should be thrown out." The acting chief justice, along with Justice B V Nagarathna, formed the division bench which is hearing the matter. The institute had moved the court against encroachments on the land allotted to it way back in 1979. It informed the court that the board had built structurers on the land. The bench categorically told the board that it cannot have slums wherever it wants. The court directed the State ...
