BENGALURU: The High Court on Thursday issued notices to the Bangalore Development Authority, Housing and Urban Development Departments and others in connection with a petition seeking a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into the allotment of 12 sites in HSR Layout.

Justice B Manohar was hearing a petition filed by one Jagannath M who has alleged that civic agency allotted sites in the posh locality as alternative sites to people whose lands were not acquired.

Jagannath, a resident of Kengeri Satellite Town, alleged that a property (Survey No 26/2) measuring 4.16 acres, originally owned by late Bagaluru Munishamappa, was divided among his children M Anjanappa and two others. The property was notified for acquisition on March 3, 1994, by the BDA, but it did not take possession of the land.

Jagannath alleged that 12 people made a false and fraudulent claim before the BDA for grant of sites in lieu of the property even though it was not acquired. BDA offers alterative sites to land owners who give up land notified for acquisition by the agency.
