Bombay High Court calls for action against officers responsible for installing bollards on footpaths blocking wheelchair users

“How can officers be so unmindful? With the kind of bollards that are installed, a person using a wheelchair is unable to pass through it,” the Court remarked.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation & Anr].
