  This pro bono publico petition is suo moto cognizance taken by this
  Court. It relates to newspaper reports relating to Bandicoots taking
  over Lodhi Gardens . From the newspaper reports, it appears that in view
  of large number of bandicoots the soil around the trees are weakening and
  several trees, including a large neem and an Asoka, are standing on
  ground riddled with holes.
  
  The counsel representing Govt. of NCT of Delhi as well as the NDMC,
  who are present in Court, accept notice and seek time to file a report on
  the above news item in a given time.
  
  We also noticed that a lot of stray dogs are found in the Lodhi
  Garden posing threat to the users. In the meantime, both the respondents
  are directed to take immediate action to catch and remove the stray dogs
  and report the action taken on the next adjourned dates.
  
  Call this matter on 31.10.2012.
  
  Dasti under the signatures of the Court Master.
