Bangalore: 

     A day after a compound wall of Sobha Garnet, an apartment complex on Outer Ring Road, was demolished for allegedly encroaching into Iblur Lake, its residents decided to move court against civic agencies. 

    After a meeting, resident Joe Thomas, speaking on behalf of others, told TOI that Sobha Developers is not to be blamed for the encroachment. "We decided to take legal action as there was no prior demolition notice. Civic agencies haven't done a proper land survey "he alleged. 

    Bangalore South tahsildar BR Dayanand said: "They can appeal to the court. We did the survey twice and gave them a notice in November 2013."
