In response, the counsel appearing for the State government apprised that the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) had submitted a report as per which the lake area is 5 acres and that police personnel have been deployed there to monitor the issue. .The Court then said, "If they (miscreants) have done it (unveiling Shiva Statue) after BBMP covered statue, then they have taken law into own hands. Let commissioner of police look into this also."A First Information Report (FIR) had already been registered on August 16 on the basis of complaints received on August 13 and 15. .Adding on, the counsel who submitted the memo said, "A local MP went with police to the location and said not to hurt sentiments of the people.."However, the Court, in response said,"This is a part of the investigation. We will monitor the investigation. Police also knows what will happen when Court is monitoring.".The matter will be next heard on September 2.
