Remove encroachment at Sidhra: HC

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, July 19: High Court today directed Deputy Commissioner Jammu and others to remove encroachment on State land forthwith even if it shall mean the demolition of the structure raised over it.
The direction was passed in a petition filed by Krishna Manhas seeking direction to the respondents for demarcation of land measuring 17 kanals and 9 marlas in Khasra No. 72 at Sidhra and attestation of mutation in her favour as well as in favour of the other legal heirs of late Janak Singh, who, it is alleged, was an allottee of the land.
After hearing both the sides, Justice M K Hanjura observed, “parties to the petition being illegal occupants of the land in question and their possession being forbidden by law they cannot in any manner whatsoever be protected by the court”.
Accordingly, High Court dismissed the petition with the direction to respondents to remove the encroachment forthwith even if it shall mean the demolition of the structure raised over it, which is an illegal one.
