Scores of slum dwellers were left homeless after their huts were razed in Bengaluru's Kariyammana Agrahara area, after it was claimed that the settlement belonged to illegal Bangaldeshi immigrants. The electricity and water supply have also been cut off. Locality mostly comprises of migrants from Assam, Tripura, and from North Karnataka. They were allegedly asked to vacate the land. According to the BBMP Mayor M Goutham Kumar, BBMP officials not demolished the huts. An assistant executive engineer gave the orders but he is unaware about who undertook the task.
