Speaking to Star of Mysore in this regard, Sangha leader Sampath Kothari said that Site No.105 on Sanmarga is owned by Jain community leader Kailas, who had purchased it a couple of years ago. All records pertaining to the site stands in the name of the site owner Kailas. A few individuals of the community had applied for plan approval to the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) and the construction work at the site is yet to begin.
