Construct compound for abattoir site: HC tells Palike

The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday directed the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike to construct a compound wall around the slaughterhouse being built at Herohalli Industrial Area on the outskirts of the City. 

The Palike had awarded the contract for construction of the slaughterhouse to Capri Meat Houses Private Limited after calling tenders. However, the contractor faced the local residents’ wrath and the court had directed it to continue the construction under police protection. The company had approached the High Court seeking a direction to the Palike to construct a wall around the work site. 

The court had summoned BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana, who submitted that the compound wall will be constructed shortly and a senior officer deputed to monitor the work. Justice Venugopala Gowda directed the Palike to commence the work immediately and submit a status report on March 5.

Habeas corpus plea

The High Court has disposed of a habeas corpus petition after the government agreed to revoke detention of a person under the Goonda Act, 1923. The petitioner, Raghavendra K Nayak, a member of the Vishwa Hindu Parishat, was detained on December 26 last year in Tumkur. A full bench of the High Court had directed the government to withdraw charges against the petitioner. 

However, the government did not comply with the direction and the petitioner filed a habeas corpus petition alleging that he had been detained with a political motive. Justices K L Manjunath and Ravi Malimath disposed of the petition after the government submitted that it will comply with the direction.

Fake encounter 

The High Court on Wednesday disposed of a petition filed by People Union for Civil Liberties, directing it to approach the National Human Rights Commission for an inquiry into the alleged fake encounters by senior IPS officer B Dayanand, presently the Additional Commissioner of Police ( Traffic), Bangalore.

The PUCL had moved the court, seeking directions to conduct a judicial inquiry into the alleged fake encounters in 2007 in Mangalore when Dayanand was the Superintendent of Police of Dakshina Kannada.  These cases are  presently being heard by the NHRC. The petitioner had also sought to file an FIR and initiate disciplinary action against the police officer.
