Now, fire breaks out in Benniganahalli lake

A fire broke out on the Benniganahalli lake in the city, leaving residents living around it shocked. Jerry George from Benniganahalli could not believe his eyes when he saw thick smoke rising from the water body.

“I was standing on the balcony of my apartment around 11.30 am when I saw the fire,” said George. He then took pictures and shared them with his friends through a WhatsApp group. It is learnt that the lake comes under the Bangalore Development Authority. Eventually, it became a garbage dump.

Four months ago, fire broke out in Bellandur lake too drawing the ire of the National Green Tribunal, which had made a scathing remark on the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) and the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA) stating that they were the only government agencies in the world responsible for lakes on fire.

KLCDA chairperson G Vidyasagar was not available for comment.
