Sharma back in BMTF, officials on their toes

Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force chief R P Sharma got cracking soon after taking charge of the post. Two days after he was assigned additional charge of BMTF, Sharma held a meeting with his subordinates and asked them to show progress in cases registered in the past and action taken on complaints. Sources in the BMTF said he gave the BMTF police 10 days to submit a detailed action taken report.

The major fallout of the change in guard was felt in the Bengaluru district authorities as they have been asked to furnish the progress made in the complaints pertaining to encroachment of lakes and stormwater drains.

An officer in the Bengaluru urban district said a BMTF inspector has sought the progress in the case related to Venkatarayana Kere, a tank measuring 4 acres, 15 guntas in Gubbalala village off Kanakapura Road. “Just now, our officers prepared a reply and sent it to BMTF. The BDA has encroached upon the tank and formed a layout. The BMTF has already registered an FIR in this case,” said the officer. Along with it, details of more lakes and stormwater drains have been sought in which some big builders are involved, the officer said.
