Mysuru: A private person has begun clearing construction debris on the Block 5A and C coming under the controversial Kurubarahalli Survey No.4, which the then Deputy Commissioner in 2015 had declared as ‘B Kharab’ land.
The debris is being shifted using a JCB machine from ‘C’ Block on the left side of the land on the road leading to Lalithadripura near Lalitha Mahal helipad to the ‘A’ Block.
K. Manu, who is reportedly undertaking the shifting of debris, said that construction debris which is dumped during night time on ‘C’ Block had resulting in debris forming a small hill with bushes and shrubs grown all around it and hence the debris is being moved to the ‘A’ Block which is at a short distance.
