The High Court has directed the government to proceed in accordance with law while leasing out the tank bed at Chikkajala hobli to the Turf Club.

The government, in its interlocutory application had sought certain modifications to the 1995 court order following a petition by environmentalist  Zafar Fathehully.

The order, citing Lakshaman Rao Committee report, had directed that the tank bed area should not be given to any person or institute.

The division bench headed by Chief Justice P D Dinakaran and Justice V G Sabhahit, directed the government to proceed further, in accordance with law.
