Bangalore’s local civic body Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in consultation with Bengaluru Traffic Police, will soon build over 500 crosswalks in the city. These 15 centimetre-high crosswalks will be built in a bid to ensure safety for pedestrians crossing the roads, as it forces drivers of speeding motor vehicles to hit the brakes. As per the initial phase of BBMP’s plans, crosswalks will be built along Sarjapur Road, Magadi Road and Outer Ring Road.
Meanwhile, seven directors of I Monetary Advisory (IMA) Group – Naveed Ahmed, Arshad Khan, Nizamuddin, Nasir Hussain, Anwar Pasha, Waseem and Dadapeer – who had gone into hiding after an audio clip of the IMA Group founder Mohammed Mansoor Khan went viral, have been arrested. They are now being interrogated on the whereabouts of the IMA group promoter Mansoor Khan. They have been remanded to 10-day police custody.
