The Additional Advocate General on Monday informed the High Court of Karnataka that out of 200 cases in which charge sheets were filed for the offences under the Karnataka Open Places (Prevention of Disfigurement) Act, 1981, the accused have pleaded guilty in 33 matters, and the same have been disposed of.

The counsel also submitted that all such cases were transferred to the court of 56th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Bengaluru.

The court directed the AAG to place before it the details of the cases in which the accused have pleaded guilty.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Dinesh Maheshwari was hearing a batch of petitions seeking directions for the removal of illegal flexes and hoardings in the city.

Hoardings at 8th Mile

The bench also orally observed that there are some hoardings still put up at 8th Mile while the BBMP counsel responded that those hoardings were not brought down as there is a stay order by the court against the removal of the hoarding.

The bench then asked counsel to collect orders by the court against the removal of such hoardings and produce them before it on Tuesday.

The court adjourned the case to Tuesday.
