The Supreme Court has refused to entertain the CPI’s plea against the removal of encroachments in South Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh area. The court asked the petitioner to approach the High Court.

South Delhi Municipal Corporation’s action against encroachment and illegal construction is going on in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh from 11 am today. Bulldozer by SDMC is continuously working to remove encroachment from the area. Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan from Okhla has also reached the spot against the action of encroachment by SDMC. He was also seen coming in front of the bulldozer several times to stop the action. On the other hand, many local Congress leaders have also come out on the road with the common people.

People have protested against the operation of bulldozers by jamming. AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, who is opposing the removal of the encroachment, alleged that the MCD is running a campaign to “spoil the atmosphere”. Khan said the people of the area had already removed the encroachment on his request. He said the “vaju khana” and toilets outside a mosque here were earlier removed in the presence of the police.
