BENGALURU: The High Court on Friday appointed a court commissioner to conduct spot inspection of some alleged illegal constructions.

The court was hearing a public interest petition challenging the construction of a temple and unauthorised shops on a civic amenity (CA) site on Dr Vishnuvardhan Road near Uttarahalli. The petition was filed by local residents, including one Ramakrishna.

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice B V Nagarathna appointed government advocate M I Arun as court commissioner to inspect the spot on Sunday. The matter was adjourned to September 21.

The petitioners alleged that the Pattalamma temple was constructed on a CA site. Next to this, there are some unauthorised shops. These should be evicted, they appealed.

According to petitioners, Bharath House Building Cooperative Society formed the layout on 89 acres and reserved seven CA sites with approval from the Bangalore Development Authority. Later, the BDA handed over the layout to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. The unauthorised shops had come up on one of the CA sites, they said.
