The Karnataka High Court on Thursday ordered issue of notices to Transport Minister R. Ashok, the State Government and others on a public interest litigation (PIL) petition relating to the shifting of a Transport Department check-post in Bijapur district.

The petitioner, S. Bagli, a Bharatiya Janata Party legislator, alleged that the check-post at Zalki was arbitrarily and illogically shifted to Chadchan.

Both Zalki and Chadchan are in Bijapur district. Mr. Bagli said though representations had been given, no action had been taken. A Division Bench adjourned further hearing of the case.
