High Court bans tree felling on UAS campus for laying link road

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Environmentalists and public-spirited persons battling the decision of the authorities to build a link road within the sprawling premises of the University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS), Bangalore, scored a major victory when the Karnataka High Court on Friday directed the authorities to refrain from cutting or removing any tree within the UAS campus.

A Division Bench comprising Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice Aravind Kumar passed the order on a petition by several former Vice-Chancellors of UAS, Bangalore, including R. Dwarkinath, G.K. Veeresh, K.V. Devaraj, A.M. Krishnappa, M.N. Shelavantar, N.G. Perur and B. Bisalaiah. The petitioners had urged the court to restrain the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) from going ahead with the construction of a road linking Yeshwanthpur with Yelahanka via Bellary Road. They wanted a direction to the authorities not to cut or remove any tree in the guise of building a road.The Bench, in an interim order, directed the BBMP not to cut trees and adjourned the case.
