  • The State government on Friday told the Karnataka High Court that a standard operating procedure (SOP) will be followed by the police to initiate action in cases of complaints of noise pollution.
  • The affidavit was submitted before a division bench comprising Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Hemant Chandangoudar during the hearing of a PIL petition complaining about noise pollution by pubs, bars and restaurants in Indiranagar.
  • The SOP was prepared as the court had earlier pointed out that the police lack awareness on initiating action on complaints of noise pollution.
