Man wants OK to use helicopter to shower petals on new house

A petition has been filed before the high court seeking direction to the Bengaluru police commissioner to allow the petitioner to use a helicopter to shower petals on his newly constructed house on the day of his house-warming ceremony.

The petitioner, M Muniraju, has constructed a house at Mallur village, Varthur hobli in Bengaluru East taluk. The ‘gruhapravesha’ (house-warning ceremony) is fixed for February 9. He had approached the police commissioner to permit him to use a helicopter to shower petals on his newly constructed house. The petitioner said that he has distributed invitation cards mentioning the petal-showering in it. The police denied permission to use the helicopter. Justice A S Bopanna directed the government counsel to get instructions from the police on permission to use the helicopter.

Notice to govt, schools
The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the chairman, District Education Regulation Authority (Deputy Commissioner), Krishna International school, New Carmel School and Vidyaniketan school in a petition filed against the District Education Authority for not following the high court directions on school fees.

The petitioner, Karnataka Vidyarthigala Poshakara Jagruthi Vedike, had approached the court contending that the DC has not followed directions while adjudicating the dispute between the schools and the students’ parents in fixing the school fees. Private schools continue to charge huge fees, the petitioner said and sought directions to quash the decision taken recently on the fee structure. Justice S Sujatha ordered notice and adjourned the hearing.
