On Friday, the Karnataka High Court refused to entertain a plea seeking a direction to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to inspect the High Court building.
It was claimed by the petitioner that there was no sanctioned plan for the High Court building and no occupancy certificate had been granted by the BBMP.
To this the court said that
“The original High Court building was constructed a century ago…” ans its not the matters of private parties.
Further, the Court replied to petioner that it shows the personal interest where petitioner claimed to have enough knowledge on the subject as he have masters degree from foreign university.
The pleas was filed as a memo seeking intervention in already pending petition filed in 2019 relating to the use of High Court building’s basement which is contrary to law.
Thus, the period requested state government to make additional spaces in high court so that basement should not be used for offices.
However, it was said during the hearing that 50 percent offices from the basement of the High Court has been removed.
Next the matter will be heard in September 3.
