Demolition process stopped in Delhi's Jahangirpuri


New Delhi, April 20 : The demolition process was stopped after several illegal encroachments were demolished by the Municipal Corporation in the violence-hit Jahangirpuri area of the national capital. Among the demolished were a tobacco shop, a scrap dealer's shop, a juice corner and the front gate of a mosque. The residents were extremely angry over the development. "What is the connection of demolition with riots?," asked a 28-year-old Sushil while speaking to IANS. Another woman named Najma said this action was completely one-sided. Pertinently, the shops that were demolished belonged to both the communities. The process was stopped due to the Supreme Court's intervention which ordered status quo on the demolition drive against the alleged encroachers. The Chief Justice directed status quo on the demolition drive and agreed to list the matter for hearing on Thursday before an appropriate bench. /IANS
