The High Court of Karnataka has castigated alleged tendency of some police personnel settling civil disputes in police stations, stating that despite court orders restraining police from interfering in civil matters, they continue to do so, especially in real estate transactions related to land disputes.


J Ravi, a resident of Geddalahalli in Bengaluru, alleged that there were attempts to collect money from him by the Banasawadi Police in a civil dispute.

Justice M Nagaprasanna, who heard the petition, expressed dissatisfaction, and said that despite several court orders against police interference in civil matters, they are still violating it.
