Mangaluru, Oct 24: The High Court of Karnataka has asked the Mangaluru City Corporation and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board to clarify its stance on appointing an organisation such as the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute to prevent recurrence of tragedies such as the Pachanady disaster.

In August 2019, a mound of garbage at the Pachanady landfill, on the outskirts of the coastal city slid downwards landing on various houses and several houses. 

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka pointed out to the MCC and the pollution board that the garbage dump had become a major health hazard, contaminating local groundwater aquifers.

The court also sought an explanation from the member-secretary of the KSPCB on whether or not action would be taken against the officer who had failed to lodge a complaint in connection with the Pachanady disaster 14 months after the incident, instead of doing so immediately after.

The court was informed that the state government had disbursed the remaining quantum of amount, Rs 14 crore, towards compensation for those affected by the disaster. The lawyer for the MCC, meanwhile, issued a new paper publication calling on all those affected by the disaster to submit their claims.

The court is hearing the case following a PIL filed by the Karnataka State Legal Services Authority.

Udupi, Oct 26: A woman who consumed a sliced papaya without knowing that it was laced with rat poison lost her life on October 24 at Kudi village in Udupi taluk.

The victim has been identified as Shreemathi (43), wife of Vaman Naik.

Vaman Naik runs a cashew factory behind his residence at Devaragunda in Kudui.

The cashew factory is infested with rats. To control the menace of rodents, the family used to keep papaya pieces laced with rat poison at different places.

On October 19, as usual, papaya fruit pieces mixed with rat poison had been kept in the house. Shreemathi, by oversight, consumed the poisoned papaya pieces at around 1.30 pm on October 19.

On October 20, she complained of extreme pain in the stomach. Her daughter Vidyashree (18) who came home at 8 pm that day, took her mother along with father to a private hospital and got her admitted there.

Without responding to treatment, Shreemathi breathed her last on October 24. On the basis of a report filed by Vidyashree, Hiriadka police have registered a case of unnatural death and undertaken probe.

Bengaluru, Oct 19: The CBI has booked six customs officials in connection with the alleged disappearance of gold weighing 2.6 kg from a warehouse at the airport in the city.

The gold was seized at the Kempegowda international airport here from 13 passengers between June 8, 2012 and 26 March, 2014.

On October 12, 2020, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered a case against two assistant commissioners, three superintendents of central tax and another officer.

In its report, the CBI stated that the Directorate of General Vigilance of Hyderabad Zonal Unit of Customs department had conducted an internal investigation and found the alleged involvement of the officials in seizure of gold and its deposit in the warehouse.

It was during their tenure at the Airport that the gold went missing.

The six officers who were in charge of the mishandled baggage godown were entrusted with the gold seizure from the passengers, the CBI said.

“They abused their official position and did not carry out inventory of the gold and did not hand over the yellow metal received from the seizing officers to the MHB officers of the next shift,” the CBI said in its FIR.

All the six have been booked under section 409 (criminal breach of trust) and 120-B (Criminal conspiracy) of the IPC and 13(1)(c) (fraudulent misappropriation) and 13(2) (criminal misconduct) of the Prevention of Corruption Act-1988.
