 Facing shortage of open spaces for developing sports grounds in the city, GHMC commissioner Somesh Kumar on Tuesday said the corporation has decided on a unique experiment of constructing an 'underground stadium' in Malakpet.

Somesh Kumar, who visited the area on Tuesday, asked senior officials of the corporation to get on board experts to prepare a blueprint for the stadium under the park opposite Aaiza School.

According to officials, the GHMC had sanctioned Rs 6 crore for building an indoor stadium in Saleem Nagar colony two years ago. But the work on the proposed site, a park, could not start owing to objections raised by locals and later the intervention of the high court. That proposal is being shifted to the basketball court in the open area in front of the Malakpet school, they said.
