Knowledge Park: court orders status quo

: A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court on Thursday ordered that status quo be maintained with respect to paddy fields taken over for setting up a Knowledge Park at Ramanattukara in Kozhikode.

The Bench comprising Chief Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice P.N. Ravindran issued the interim order on a public interest writ petition against the conversion of paddy fields.

The petitioner pointed out that the reclamation of 31.4763 hectares (82 acres) of paddy fields would cause acute shortage of drinking water in the areas.
