As Congress plans to encircle PM Modi’s resident, Section 144 is imposed on New Delhi
Ordering the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to carry out the demolition of unauthorized jhuggis in the Yamuna floodplains only in consultation with the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), the Delhi High Court said people cannot not be evicted “with a bulldozer at their door early in the morning or late at night, without any notice, rendering them completely homeless”.
Judge Subramonium Prasad said the DDA’s action of removing a person, who they claim is an encroachment, from his residence overnight cannot be accepted. “These people must be given a reasonable amount of time and a temporary location must be provided before they engage in any demolition activity,” the court said, while ordering the DDA to give residents enough time to take action. other provisions.
‘I don’t know what will happen, but I feel safer’: More Afghan Sikhs arrive in India
Hugging his older brother, Jagjeet, who had just arrived at Delhi airport from Afghanistan, an emotional Amarjeet said: “I’ve been waiting for him for a year now. We have always been together and I will never leave my brother. He suffered a lot there. I will help him and his children find work here. Jagjeet, who owned a department store in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, and his sons were among at least 28 Afghan Sikhs who were evacuated to India on Wednesday.
The evacuation was facilitated by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandak Committee (SGPC) in coordination with the India Global Forum and the government. Concerns about the safety of Sikhs in Afghanistan have grown since an attack on a gurdwara in Kabul in June that killed two people. SGPC officials said around 65 to 70 people had been evacuated recently and more would be flown to India as soon as their visa applications were approved and the planes were organised.
