Hoarding: HC questions BBMP’s action

A view of Karnataka High Court in Bangalore.  

The Karnataka High Court on Monday questioned Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike’s action of registering a criminal case against hotel Le Meridian for not removing an alleged illegal hoarding though there was a stay order granted by the court in 2016.

The hotel had filed a petition questioning the registration of a First Information Report by the High Grounds police on October 1, 2018 based on a complaint lodged by the BBMP.

It was also contended in the petition that the BBMP itself had told a division bench of the court, which is monitoring the BBMP’s actions against illegal hoarding, that the civic body will not remove hoardings protected under stay orders from courts.

Justice P.S. Dinesh Kumar, before whom the petition came up for hearing, has adjourned further hearing till December 14 at the request of the BBMP counsel.
