On February 23, 2011, the High Court dismissed Ganesh Krupa Society’s appeal to stay the evictions. The judge said that GKS was wasting the Court’s time asking for a stay. This is despite the fact that prima facie evidence shows that the builder used forgery and fraud to show the society’s consent for redevelopment. This case is under police investigation. The Court still believes that GKS’ efforts to save their old, crippled, women and children from ending up on the street is a waste of time.
There was a new development two days ago. The Western Railway has sent a letter to SRA saying that they have violated the NOC while constructing rehab buildings number 12 and 13. They have ordered demolition and have come to stop work on these buildings. So is it fair that even while the rehab buildings are under so much controversy, people’s 40-year-old brick homes will continue to be forcibly broken down?
