High Court asks police to carry on with surprise checks on noisy bars



The High Court has directed the city police to continue their surprise checks on pubs and restaurants which were violating sound norms and causing noise pollution. The court was hearing a public interest litigation filed by residents of Indiranagar against such bars and pubs in the area which were operating in residential zones and affecting the residents.

The HC had directed the police to take action against the violaters. On Thursday the court said that the police have to file an action taken report within two weeks. The police had to purchase sound level meters to assess the noise. But for months the police have fumbled in procurement. In June, they managed to procure only six instruments. The court was upset with the way the police had failed and directed the State to procure the instruments at the earliest.

The court had also directed the authorities to identify silent zones in Bengaluru city. The State Government has submitted a list of such zones. The court directed the State to file details of the notification and adjourned the case.
