A Division Bench of the AP High Court, comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyothi Sengupta and Justice K.C. Bhanu, on Tuesday made it clear that all materials left in the Hussainsagar lake during the Ganesh idol immersion shall be cleared within 24 hours.

The Bench was disposing of a batch of cases filed in this regard. It reiterated the spirit of judgment of the AP High Court delivered in 2011.

For the record, Venumadhav, a practising advocate, had filed a petition complaining that the Hussainsagar was polluted due to the immersion of idols, and that the main bund was being damaged.
