Mavallipura Landfill in Yelahanka, Bangalore under seige by villagers

7 October, 2009

Dear Sir or Madam:

Bangalore's garbage killing people in Mavallipura

Villagers refuse to cremate young victim's body

Press Release : Bangalore : 23 July 2010

Akshay Kumar, a 15 year old boy, died of dengue this morning at Mavallipura, Yelahanka Hobli, 20 kms north of Bangalore. Akshay's untimely death is the tragic outcome of reckless dumping of hundreds of tonnes of garbage daily by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and M/s Ramky Infrastructure Ltd. at Mavallipura, making it a fertile habitat for mosquitoes and resulting in widespread affliction of local communities with deadly dengue and chikungunya.
