COCHIN: On Friday, while looking for a matter of Pauly Vadakkan v. Corporation of Cochin, the Kerala High Court directed Cochin Corporation to file a report on the missing grating covering the drains on the roads.
The bench was headed by Justice Devan Ramachandran, who orally said that the city needs to grow and it can only be possible if the pedestrians can walk.
The Court directed the Standing Counsel for CSML Advocate M U Vijayalakshmi and Standing Counsel for Cochin Corporation Advocate Janardhanan Shenoy to file their response to the newspaper report. The matter came to notice when a newspaper put an article that the gratings were missing on certain roads in Kochi, covering the holes to draw water into the drains, and this is likely to injure pedestrians and motorists, particularly two-wheelers.
The next date of hearing is on August 1.
