BENGALURU: The High Court on Monday directed the City Police Commissioner to ensure free flow of traffic on Thyagaraja Nagar First Main Road.

Disposing of a public interest litigation, the division bench of acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice B V Nagarathna also directed the city police commissioner to ensure free movement of traffic at similar roads across the city.

The division bench asked, “Has any god asked that a temple be built and pooja be performed on the public road?”

Before this, Petitioner Prashanth Rao argued that due to the activities of a local Panduranga temple, traffic on First Main Road has been closed for three days and this happens every time there is a religious function. Rao also claimed the temple was built on the road and vehicles were being parked right in front of houses. He further argued that the sound of loudspeakers caused discomfort to his ailing mother, who had undergone surgery.
