Bengaluru: The Karnataka High court on Tuesday directed the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike to fill potholes in all major roads of the city within 15 days and not give any excuses in this regard.

Hearing a petition filed by one Vijayan Menon and others seeking directions to the government and the civic agency to fill up potholes in the city, the court bench, headed by the Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice S.R. Krishnakumar said that a feeling of guilt haunts them when they read reports in the media about people losing their lives to potholes.

The court termed the death of a private company employee Ashwin as an unfortunate incident. Ashwin, who was fetching food for his mother died in MS Palya of Bengaluru on March 14. He was riding a bike and fell down while crossing a big pothole and suffered fatal injuries.

“The work of fixing potholes must be taken on a war-footing basis. BBMP should not keep on giving excuses in this regard,” the court said.

The survey should be conducted in the central business district in three days. The agency can take the help of other agencies. After this, without delay, the work of filling of potholes must be taken up by using suitable technology, the bench explained.
