BBMP official files FIR against debris dumper

Silt and debris were being dumped in an open site. Confronting the dumper only led to altercation.

Shashi Kumar, Assistant Executive Engineer, BBMP, filed an FIR against a Chandramouli Reddy on August 4th, for illegally dumping the silt and debris on survey no. 69/1, Haralukunte, 15th B Main, 21st cross of Sector III, HSR layout.

Kumar says, “Earlier, when the residents complained, we went and filed a complaint in the police station. But the same dumping event happened again and that’s when I went and filed an FIR against the accused.”

When the residents went and asked Reddy to stop dumping, he responded with abusive language. So two FIRs were filed under section 504 r/w IPC (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and under section 283 r/w IPC (Danger or obstruction in public way or line of navigation) in the HSR Layout police station.

On police request, Kumar took them to survey the spot. He says, “I took the inspector to survey the spot where the illegal dumping is happening, they made a mahazar (pronouncement) and the enquiry will start soon.”

H M Javali, the general secretary of HSR Layout sector III RWA, says, “We had complained to the police one month ago and the police are still investigating the case. This silt and excavation from other sites has resulted in a lot of stench and mosquitoes in our houses.”

Kumar adds the cleaning of the place will start, depending on the investigation report of the police. He says, “If the land does not belong to Chandramouli, then we will ask him to clean the place. and if by any chance, the land belongs to him, we will have to think of something else, (and) clean it.”
