The Karnataka High Court has passed an injunction order on a writ petition filed by Ganesh J. Oulkar, seeking orders to restrain the Karnataka Housing Board, from constructing any residential quarters, building or apartment and changing the nature of the land at Jakkeri Honda.
Ganesh J. Oulkar, who filed the petition on June 27, he said that the KHB had taken up construction work on the open space marked for a park at Jakkeri Honda in violation of the Karnataka Parks (Protection) Act.
KHB was going ahead with the construction work despite the order. In August 2006, the district administration granted permission to the KHB to construct residential quarters for the employees of the Revenue Department at Jakkeri Honda. But the KHB had taken up construction work on an open space marked for a park. Belgaum City Corporation, which is also a respondent, had not granted permission to the KHB to take up construction work on the open space.
