BENGALURU: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday directed the panel constituted to look into the alleged irregularities in allotment of G-category sites by the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) and submit a report with regard to 232 cases where the enquiry is completed.
Fixing December 6 as the deadline to submit the report, the division bench headed by Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee said: “We are expecting individual report/opinion in respect of each case. If enquiries in relation to 232 cases are complete, we direct the members of the committee to submit their report in relation to those matters on December 6, 2016.”
This direction was issued after Additional Advocate General A S Ponnanna submitted to the court that out of 313 cases, enquiries was completed in 232 cases.
The committee is comprised of Justice A M Farooq and Justice A V Srinivasa Reddy, former High Court judges and Subir Hari Singh, a retired IAS officer. The committee was constituted in compliance of the High Court order on August 25, 2012, in response to a PIL challenging the grant of sites under ‘G’ category during the regime of former chief ministers H D Kumaraswamy and B S Yeddyurappa.
In his petition, city-based advocate S Vasudeva contended that there are serious irregularities in allotting sites under the discretionary quota by the then chief ministers.
