Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday quashed two state government notifications issued in 2010 for acquisition of about 250 acres of land for the proposed Bellary Airport project.

Allowing a batch of petitions by 70 farmers challenging the acquisition of their 'fertile' land by the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB), Justice Abdul Nazeer quashed the government notifications dated January 23, 2010 and June 7, 2010.

The Judge directed the KIADB to consider the objections raised by the farmers. Since 2009, farmers had been agitating against acquisition of their land for the project.

Justice Nazeer had earlier stayed the acquisition of the land when the matter came up before the circuit bench of the high court in Dharwad in 2010.
