BENGALURU: The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Friday informed the High Court that the road allegedly blocked by Sobha Daffodil condominium in HSR Layout was shown as road by the developer in its own plan.

Advocate K N Puttegowda, representing BBMP, made this submission before a division bench of Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice Ravi Malimath during the hearing of an appeal filed by the owners of flats in Sobha Daffodil. The bench ordered status quo after issuing a notice to BBMP.

The owners filed an appeal after a single-judge bench vacated the order and stayed the letters by BDA and BBMP to clear blockage of the road.

During the hearing of the appeal, a few people violated the decorum of the court by clapping to a query by Chief Justice Mukherjee. This irked the judge, who issued a warning. “This is very dangerous... We will not allow this in the court. This is not a Hindi cinema, it is a real court. Ask them (those who clapped) to go out,” he said.
