High Court summons Palike commissioner

The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday directed the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike Commissioner to appear before it in connection with a petition on an unauthorised construction. 

The Malabar Muslim Association had moved the High Court alleging that their property on Khader Shariff Garden had been encroached by Razia Begum, a resident. The Court directed the BBMP engineer to inspect the property and initiate action against the encroacher, way back in 2010. Since no action was taken to evict the encroacher, the petitioner filed a fresh petition.During the hearing on Tuesday, Justice Ram Mohan Reddy summoned the jurisdictional engineer to give reasons for not initiating any action against the encroacher, despite the court’s direction. Not convinced by the reply of the engineer, the Court directed the Palike commissioner to appear before for an explanation.
