Karnataka Tourism Minister Priyank Kharge pulled up online ticketing portal/app BookMyShow for selling night trek tours in and around Bengaluru on its platform. Khage tweeted, “Night treks are banned in the state @bookmyshow . We will have to take action against the organizers & you for promoting treks that are illegal, if immediate action is not taken. Also please submit details of the organizers to my office, you know how to reach me.” BookMyShow immediately responded to his tweet and assured that the event has been removed.
