Techie's death: HC frowns on illegal hoardings

Techies death: HC frowns on illegal hoardings

Chennai: Coming down heavily on the Tamil Nadu government over illegal hoardings, the Madras High Court on Friday wondered how many more lives should be lost as a result of such banners, endangering the lives of people.

A day after a 23-year-old woman techie came under the wheels of a water tanker after she fell losing balance when an illegal hoarding crashed on her in a city suburb, the court asked if the government will take a firm stand against such unauthorised banners.

"How many more litres of blood the state government needs to paint the roads with," a Division Bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and N Seshasayee wondered.

The court asked whether at least now Chief Minister K Palaniswami will be willing to issue a statement against such unauthorised banners.
