BENGALURU: The state government on Thursday informed the Karnataka High Court that it has withdrawn the restrictions imposed on inter-state travellers. Taking note of this, a division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi disposed of a public interest litigation against the restrictions, filed by city-based advocate M Indira Priyadarshini.

The state government informed the court that it issued a circular on August 24, withdrawing the restrictions on people who wanted to enter Karnataka.The government’s decision came after the High Court sought an explanation  while acting on a PIL drawing attention to the severe difficulties faced by workers from the unorganised sector in Hosur and Anekal taluks on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border in entering the state due to the Covid protocol.
