HC dismisses hotel's plea


The Police had earlier said that they had not adopted a pick and choose method to close down the hotels as the order was issued under Section 31 (w) of Karnataka Police Act for the safety of the employees and the public.

They had contended that Bangalore being a metropolitan city, was frequented by the foreigners and their safety was the first priority.

The City Police Commissioner, in his statement, averred that the decision had been taken to ensure safety of the public at large, in accordance with the Public Entertainment Rules. Upholding the City police order dated 9 May, 2009, Justice N K Patil dismissed the petition saying that the decision is taken to maintain law and order.
