By Express News ServiceBENGALURU: Dissatisfied with the action taken by the state police in response to illegal transportation of labourers and school children in goods vehicles and autorickshaws, the Karnataka High Court directed the state government to file a fresh report on the action taken.
The division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice H T Narendra Prasad issued this direction after going through the compliance report submitted by the police.

The court said it was not clear if the police was carrying out special drives near schools to check unauthorised transportation.
“We are not satisfied with the steps taken by the state,” the court said.
