| Thursday | 22nd July, 2021
New delhi: The Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi government, Delhi Waqf Board and SDMC to look into the grievances of an organisation alleging encroachment and unauthorised construction at a graveyard at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg here.
The court said if any encroachment is found, it shall be removed as per law.
The court disposed of a petition filed by Yuva Sangharsh Samiti, through advocate Hemant Choudhary, which has sought the removal or sealing of encroachment in the form of unauthorised construction over public land at the graveyard here.
It alleged that the activities are in the knowledge of Delhi Waqf board and South Delhi Municipal Corporation and BSES which has installed electricity connections there.
The plea alleged that graves were being sold at the graveyard at exorbitant amounts to the public and more space to influential persons.
