BANGALORE: The High Court on Friday directed state government and Housing Board (KHB) to maintain a status quo in connection with a petition filed by the farmer of Vajarahalli and Ravanahalli near Kanakapura.

The petitioners, Rajappa and others, stated that the KHB had acquired 150 acres of land near Kanakapura Road to construct a layout in 2004 and they were not given proper compensation. They added that the court ordered that status quo be maintained when they petitioned in 2007. A division bench comprising Justice Ram Mohan Reddy directed the state government to order the KHB to not construct any buildings until the dispute gets resolved.
