HC stays proceedings against 2 retd BWSSB engineers

Bengaluru, DH News Service, Apr 21 2017, 1:17 IST

The high court on Thursday stayed the lower court proceedings against two retired BWSSB engineers S Krishnappa and N Narasimha Murthy booked for failing to control pollution in the city’s lakes.

The pollution control board (KSPCB) had initiated criminal proceedings against the engineers who had failed to control the flow of sewage water into Madiwala and Arakere lakes.

KSPCB had filed a complaint under the provisions of Water Act, 1974, where the board has contended that the sewage was allowed to flow into the stormwater drain (SWD), which ultimately reached the lakes and polluted them. The petitioners said sewage water flowed into the lake through SWD which are controlled by BBMP. They said sewage flows from 110 villages where BWSSB’s infrastructure is not present.
