SC refuses to stay admin’s state land eviction drive in Jammu Kashmir
The Supreme court of India Friday denied ordering a stay over Jammu Kashmir admin’s ongoing eviction drive in the region.
Bar and Bench reported that the Supreme Court hearing an urgent application seeking a stay on a circular issued by the Jammu Kashmir admin that directed removal of all encroachment on land owned by state, including Roshni land and Kachharie land refused to pass the order.
We are not passing any order. You instruct them orally to not demolish any houses. But we will not grant a general stay at all so that others do not get benefits,” Justice Shah said.
The Jammu Kashmir admin has issued an order to Deputy commissioners in all districts of Jammu Kashmir ordering them to remove all the “encroachments” from the state land in the region by January 31.
