BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Monday dismissed a PIL challenging the denotification of one acre of land in Nandini Layout extension at Jarakabandekaval village, Bangalore, which was denotified during the tenure of former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice B V Nagarathna also termed the petition infructuous.
The government had submitted that it withdrew the denotification of the said land acquired.
Mahalakshmi Layout MLA N L Narendra Babu in a PIL had accused former Yeddyurappa and BDA officials of conniving to grant approval to drop the acquisition to benefit an applicant.
He had alleged that the land was acquired for public purposes with the scheme being fully executed as per the provisions of the BDA Act, 1975, and that the denotification order is of mala fide intention.
