Koramangala flyover work begins as fresh queries arise 15.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The construction of the Koramangala flyover to decongest three junctions has formally kicked off. But even as residents associations there claim the project had their approval, other voices have emerged raising questions about its impact on traffic and environment. The project had been in the pipeline since 2012, and all of Koramangala stood united on this matter, says Nitin Seshadri, former president of the 3rd Block Residents Welfare Association. The project had been in the public domain for years, he points out, questioning the interest in raking up issues now. The elevated corridor is designed as a four-lane, bi-directional structure, integrating three traffic junctions en route: The hyper-clogged Sony World Junction, the Ejipura Main Road-Inner Ring Road Junction and the Kendriya Sadana Junction. Foundation pits are now being dug from the Kendriya Sadan side. Critics of the project say the flyover will result in cascading effect, choking both ends at the Intermediate Ring Road (IRR) and Hosur Road. ...

Man held with bullets 8.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City

A 60-year-old ex-serviceman was held by security personnel at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) here on November 2 while boarding a flight to Pune with four .22 unlicensed bullets and two empty cartridges.

Bade Babanarao, of Pune, had arrived in Bengaluru by train to visit his daughter in Indiranagar and was going back by a Spicejet flight.

Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel spotted the ammunition while scanning his hand baggage. They detained him and started questioning him while members of his family were still at the airport to see him off. Preliminary enquiry revealed that Rao had obtained the ammunition from a friend named, Shankar Singh, who is also an ex-serviceman. He put them in the bag and forgot to take them off, police said.

The CISF informed the KIA police who verified Babanaraos claims that seemed truthful. They, however, registered a case.

Falling behind 7.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Wednesday
It is said that when in doubt, pedal it out. Residents of South Bengaluru cannot unfortunately take recourse to this solution because localities there have been left out of the much-touted Public Bicycle Sharing (PBS) project. Public bicycling infrastructure will be created in a 28 sq km area, covering places like MG Road, Vidhana Soudha, Indiranagar, Banaswadi, HRBR Layout, HBR Layout, Kacharakanahalli, Koramangala and HSR Layout, according to a government order issued by the Urban Development Department. With political machinations said to be the reason behind the exclusion of constituencies in South Bengaluru, this has caused a lot of heartburn to the residents of the area. "Places like Jayanagar have some of the widest roads in the city as well as an active cycling community. It is unfortunate that political considerations have led to South Bengaluru losing out on a good idea. Development should not be centered around areas like MG Road and Indiranagar only," opines Sruthy Ram, an MNC ...

Police now seek exclusive dog squad to sniff out narcotic drugs 6.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Following increasing cases of drug-trafficking in the city, the narcotic drugs squad has decided to use an exclusive canine squad to sniff out contraband. ADGP (KSRP) Bhaskar Rao said a proposal had been sent to the government to set up the canine squad. It was also decided to adopt 35 German Shepherd pups for forming a young canine squad. Assistant commissioner of police from Central Crime Branch B S Mohan Kumar, who heads the narcotics squad, said the police now depend only on informers and peddlers to dig out drug-trafficking cases in the city. He added that use of dogs in the operation can help identify banned substances. "If there is a dedicated canine squad, we can raid drug peddlers houses," he Kumar said. According to narcotics squad officials, earlier, drug peddlers used to function in the areas like MG Road, Indiranagar and Koramangala but they have now moved their operations to citys outskirts like K R Puram, Banaswadi, Kammanahalli, TC Palya and Hebbal. An official from the city canine squad ...

The BBMP is unlikely to meet the final deadline set by the chief minister to fill potholes in the city. The revised and final deadline set by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for BBMP ends on November 6 (Monday), but several roads continue to be in a horrible state.
