SC gives Maharashtra two weeks to clear Haji Ali’s illegal encroachments

Aji

The Supreme Court on Monday granted the last opportunity to the Maharashtra government to remove illegal encroachments on 908 square metre area on the approach road and near the historic Haji Ali Dargah Shrine in south Mumbai.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud granted two weeks to the concerned authorities to remove these encroachments and asked the deputy collector to ensure that its order is complied with.

The direction came after the Haji Ali Dargah Trust, which had earlier volunteered to remove the encroachments, expressed inability in completing the task.

The court made it clear to the deputy collector of Colaba zone of south Mumbai that “serious consequences” would follow if its order for removing encroachments is not complied within two weeks from today.

On May 9, the apex court had lauded the efforts of the Dargah Trust in its attempts to remove encroachments.
