- A woman drank poison outside BDA office.
- Her house was razed down to build an underpass near Kantheerava Studio in Bengaluru.
- Neither BDA nor the state government has given her any compensation for her land.
A middle-aged woman attempted suicide in front of the Kumarapark BDA office in Bengaluru on Monday after the development authority failed to give her compensation of her land.
The victim identified as Mangala drank poison in front of BDA office in Kumarapark. She alleged despite her repeated pleas neither BDA nor the state government has given her any compensation for her land, which was acquired to build an underpass near Kantheerava Studio in Bengaluru.
“Fed up of negligence of the BDA officers in responding to my repeated pleas, I am taking the extreme step,” Mangala had said before consuming poison.
Mangala’s house was acquired by BDA and demolished to facilitate an underpass connecting the ring road near Kantheerava Studio.
She is currently admitted at Santhosh Hospital located near the BDA office premises.
In a letter, which was supposed to her death note, she requested the government to release the money promised to her, through the agreement, with an immediate effect.
“If no action is taken and I die while fighting for my right, the government will be responsible for my death,” she said in her death note.
