Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off. Muralidharan S ****************************************************************************** Hotels pump sewage into drain Four hotels are located between Hope Farm, Whitefield, and Prashanth Layout. All of them discharge sewage into an open drain closeby. One of the establishments, Adyar Anand Bhavan, openly pumps sewage water into the open drain using a high-power pump during the day.

One section of the flyover, being built at Doddanekkundi Junction, was thrown open to the public on Friday.

The flyover is being built by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) on the Marathahalli-Mahadevapura stretch of the Outer Ring Road, one of the major bottlenecks in the city. To ease traffic woes, the BDA started flyover construction work in June 2015.

According to the BDA officials, the work on the other section of the flyover is 50% complete and by October 31, the Rs 44-crore project would be ready.

Bengaluru Development Minister K J George opened the flyover for the public. He also laid the foundation stone for civic works worth Rs 205 crore in the Mahadevapura Assembly constituency. The works include road widening, asphalting, upgrading of drainage network, flyover construction at Varthur Kodi among others.

Cabinet rejects Kasturirangan report on Western Ghats 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The Karnataka Cabinet on Wednesday decided to reject the recommendations of the Kasturirangan report on the Western Ghats and convey the same to the Centre. Briefing reporters after the meeting, Law Minister TBJayachandra said the decision was taken based on feedback from 1,592 villages in the Western Ghats range which have been classified as EcologicalSensitive Areas (ESAs). The villages did not want the recommendations to be implemented as they will hamper livelihood and development in the region, Jayachandra said. In February this year, Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF)sought objections from the state government on declaration of 20,668 sq km spread across 11 districts in the Western Ghats range in the state as ESA.

Court acquits suspended French consular official of rape charge 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A city court today acquitted a suspended French consular official here of the charge of raping his minor daughter, on the grounds that he was "falsely implicated" and was innocent. Special court judge B S Rekha held that there was no evidence to prove that Mazurier Pascal had committed the crime and he was innocent as the DNA test was negative. His estranged wife, Suja Jones Mazurier, had filed an application in the court to charge Pascal for committing unnatural offences on his minor daughter. The daughter in 2012 was three years old. Suja and Pascal were married in France in 2001 and have three children. The family had moved to Bengaluru in 2008. She had also submitted a medical report from the Collaborative Child Response Unit of the Baptist Hospital, confirming the child was raped.
