The High Court of Sikkim has taken suo moto cognisance of the bad road conditions in the state and issued notices to the concerned central and state agencies, including the ministries of home, defence, finance and surface transport.

Noting that the issue also concerns the security of the state and the country, with Sikkim being a border state, the court, led by Chief Justice B K Ghosh, yesterday said that proper and dependable roads are imperative in case of any emergent cross-border situation.

Poor road conditions are aggravated by hill cutting exercises resorted to by the Border Roads Organisation and other road agencies. Moreover, heavy pre-monsoon showers have also affected the roads.
