The Karnataka High Court had previously dismissed the petition on September 27, 2023, noting that the petitioner failed to establish from revenue records that Siddapura Lotus Pond is located on canal land in survey no. 7 of Siddapura village, Varthur Hobli. The court emphasized that the records only designate the area as Mufat Kaval sarkari kunte land.

The Whitefield Rising Trust alleged that two private individuals are constructing a multi-storey commercial building after acquiring 4 guntas of land in August 2021. This land was reportedly granted by the government as compensation for land acquired from them for the Ashraya scheme in 2012.
