On 07 November 2009 300 students in the line of Fire at AITM this story was published.
It’s about a college which has come up in danger zone of weapon firing ranges of the Indian Army on Savagaon Road in Belgaum.
The Suresh Angadi Education Foundation’s Angadi Institute of Technology and Management (AITM) have been built amidst a firing range on Survey No. 72/73, which lies in the danger zone in the “Baghdad-Asmara field firing ranges”. The said area has been notified as a firing range in the Karnataka Gazette notification of February 10, 1981.
Station Commandant of the Maratha Light Infantry Regimental Centre (MLIRC) wrote to the Deputy Commissioner in the second week of September looking for urgent action in the matter, and there has been no response.
The district administration has given permission to the said college without the permission of the MLIRC.
The college is run by the foundation which is headed by Suresh C. Angadi, BJP MP.
Why there is a delay for a response from the district administration in this matter of urgency is still not known. Or will the authorities wake up when an untoward incident happens at the site.
