Plea on flex banners not clear, says HC

The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday disposed off a public interest litigation (PIL) on illegal flexes and banners erected in the city citing it to be unclear.

However, the petitioner was directed by the court to file a fresh petition regarding the issue.

A division bench of acting Chief Justice, H G Ramesh and Justice, P S Dinesh Kumar were hearing a PIL filed by Sai Datta. Datta had moved the court seeking directions to remove the illegal hoardings, flexes and banners erected in the city.

The bench asked if there was any law that restricted such banners and hoardings and if they were illegal .

The court also asked the petitioner to specify the areas where such flex banners and hoardings were put up. The petitioner's counsel could not specify the locations.

The bench orally observed that the petition was vague in nature and needed to be structured with the required information.

The court also stated that the issue of illegal hoardings was a serious concern.

The court thereafter directed the petitioner to file a fresh petition and disposed the matter.
