Bengaluru: The Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) has paid Rs 25 lakh compensation to Mangala for acquiring her property for the construction of an underpass on the Outer Ring Road near Dr Rajkumar’s memorial.

It may be recalled Mangala had attempted suicide by consuming poison on the BDA premises protesting the BDA authorities delaying the compensation for acquiring her property. Mangala was saved after BDA land acquisition officer Zahara Khanum saw her consuming poison and rushed her to the hospital.

BDA Commissioner Rajkumar Khatri visited her in hospital and handed her a cheque of Rs. 25 lakh. He also promised that she would be paid the rest of the compensation soon. Minister for Bengaluru Development and Town Planning K J George also visited Mangala in hospital.

The compensation amounts to crores of rupees. BDA officials said that they had acquired 6,750 sq ft that belonged to Mangala’s family. Many others like her are still awaiting compensation.
