A spokesperson from the Authority said: “The BDA on Sunday lodged a police complaint against Munikrishnappa for destroying public property, including 150 metres of road, on August 8.

The Authority had not officially handed over the property to Munikrishnappa and he could not claim the land to be his as of August 8.”

With regard to constructed houses in survey number 59/4 to 59/11 that has been denotified, BDA officials said that none of those will be demolished.

However, the citizens who are yet to construct the houses on the sites in the said survey numbers will have to forgo their land.

The total number of sites that fall under the denotified land in placed at 25 and 17 allottees will lose their site.

Deccan Herald on August 11 had reported in these columns that the land denotified by the BDA had left residents without any road access and eight families were set to lose their homes.

‘Restore road’

Following this report, the BDA is likely to ask Munikrishnappa to restore the road as it violates the clauses for the denotification of the land.

The BDA put the cost of the 150 metres of road at Rs 15 lakh. 

The spokesperson added that the BDA, while denotifying the property, had made it clear that public utilities cannot be touched.
