Kudremukh may house military academy

Nestled in the midst of green forests, the town could well house a military academy. A senior officer recently visited the town for a spot inspection. Colonel Prakash had arrived from Delhi to check for the suitability of the place.

On Friday, he conducted the inspection along with Mudigere tahsildar Shivegowda. The Army needs 500 acres of flat land for setting up the academy to train Army officials, Prakash is said to have told Shivegowda.

He visited areas from the Bhadra river, which flows on the outskirts of the town, upto the warehouse (sectors four and five). The tahsildar told Deccan Herald on Saturday that the two sectors were revenue land and could be handed over to the army if the State so desires.
