SC refuses to stay demolition drive to remove encroachment from the Tughlakabad area

Today, the Top Court refused to stay a demolition drive to remove encroachment from the Tughlakabad area in South Delhi.

The division bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Justice M M Sundresh agrees to hear the matter and issued notices to the Centre, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), and the Delhi Development Authority on the plea filed by some residents.

"Let notices be served on the Central government, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), and the Delhi Development Authority. We are not staying," the bench said.

Senior advocate Colin Gonsalves, appearing for the residents, first mentioned the matter before Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud, who allowed him to take it to Justice Khanna.

Gonsalves submitted before the bench that areas around the Tuglakabad Fort were ordered to be cleared and the Delhi government had offered an alternative rehabilitation for the residents.

"This is a human problem. Please restore the status quo. 1,000 houses have already gone and 1000 houses will go now," he said.

The Supreme Court said it will hear the matter on Tuesday.
