Bangalore, Sep 8: Karnataka Home Minister R Ashoka, accompanied by High Court Chief Justice J S Khehar, today (Sep 8) inspected the security arrangement put in place in the court premises.

The Minister, who along with Chief Justice Khehar inspected various places in and around the court, directed security personnel that barring the vehicles of Judges, no other vehicle should be allowed near the court premises.
