HC notice to govt over FIR to Ashoka in land case 19.1.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The High Court of Karnataka on Friday issued notices to the state government, the Lokayukta and the Anti Corruption Bureau on a petition filed by former deputy chief minister R Ashoka in the Bagair Hukum land scam. Ashoka has challenged the legality of an FIR registered by the ACB against him on November 9, 2017, over his alleged involvement in the scam. The ACB accused him of being one of the beneficiaries of the scam and alleged that the Bengaluru South Taluk Bagair Hukum Land Regularisation Committee (from 1998 to 2006) had allotted land to ineligible people. Ashoka chaired the committee in his capacity as the Uttarahalli MLA. The BJP leader suggested that the ACB had registered the case to "malign" him. He argued that other members of the committee were "deliberately" omitted from the FIR as they belonged to other political parties. He further contended that a complaint on the same matter was filed before the Lokayukta on May 27, 2013, and it was still under investigation. He reasoned ...

BJP leader and MLA R Ashoka, has filed a petition in the Karnataka High Court seeking quashing of the FIR registered against him by the ACB in the Bagair Hukum land scam.

Over 70 trees felled to lay road near Pattandur Agrahara lake 9.1.2018 deccanherald.com
Violating the National Green Tribunal (NGT) orders, the BBMP has axed at least 70 trees to lay a road near the Pattandur Agrahara Lake in Whitefield on Tuesday. In all, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike is planning to uproot at least 140 trees, including those near the lake to construct a link road to Varthur Kodi Main Road and 80-feet ITPL Road. According to residents, the civic body was secretly going ahead with the project in violation of the NGT orders. The green bench in its orders on maintaining buffer zones in 2017 had said that no development work can be taken up around the lakes in Bengaluru from 30 to 75 metres. "But this road is clearly violating the order and the BBMP officers are secretly doing it," said Sandeep Anirudhan, a nearby resident. Following protests from residents, the Palike had earlier suspended dumping debris to lay the road. "They had stopped the work, but since the heat has died down, they are back with the work," he said. Although the issue has been raised in all ward ...

PIL seeks to protect lake 4.1.2018 deccanherald.com

A public interest litigation has been filed in the High Court of Karnataka, seeking directions to protect the Kenkeramma Lake in Kanakapura, which is said to have been encroached upon by government authorities to build a community hall.

The encroached lake area measures 10 acres and 33 guntas. Petitioner Ravikumara Kanchanahalli said the authorities have dug up the tank bed and laid a cement pipe in the tank bund to divert the water, and ensure that it does not enter the tank bed. Thus, they have facilitated land grabbers to encroach the lake area easily, he said.

The petitioner sought direction to demolish all illegal structures in the lake area.

The state government has decided to withdraw lands granted to Rashtrotthana Parishat and Mythic Society in Bengaluru on lease, during the previous BJP regime.
