The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on 27 January passed an order to prohibit the sale of non-veg food within 10 km of the Yelahanka Air Force Station in view of Aero India show.

As per the order, meat stalls, non-vegetarian hotels and restaurants will remain closed from 30 January-20 February.

The Aero India Show will be conducted from February 13 to 17.

"It is to the notice of general public and proprietors of meat stalls, non-vegetarian hotels and restaurants for closure of all meat/chicken/fish shops and prohibition of serving/sale of non-vegetarian dishes within 10 km radius of Air Force Station, Yelahanka from January 30 to February 20", the order by BBMP stated.

Any violation of this will attract punishment under the BBMP Act-2020 and the rule 91 of the Indian Aircraft Rules 1937, it said.

BBMP officials told ANI that the decision was taken as the non-veg food littered in public places attract lots of scavenger birds, especially kites, which can cause mid air mishaps.
