BANGALORE:  The Karnataka High Court on Monday directed the state government to provide information on the availability of land in the city for construction of   Judges’ bungalows, in connection with a PIL petition challenging the construction work at a playground near HSR Layout.

The government counsel on March 26 had submitted that the state government had marked places near Nagawara, Banaswadi, Aralu Kunte and Arkavathy Layout. However, the land at Nagawara and Banaswadi was under litigation, he stated, and sought time to submit detailed information about the issue.

Hearing the petition, the division bench observed, “You (state) might be knowing which place is suitable and if the said places are under litigation, you can suggest some other places. File an affidavit within four weeks on the availability of places for the construction of Judges’ bungalows.”
