SC stays order on mass eviction in Haldwani over ‘Encroached Land’

“Can’t uproot 50,00 overnight” as SC stayed Uttarakhand HC’s order on eviction of 50,000 residents in Haldwani over land which Indian Railways claims is encroached upon.

In a mass relief to more than 4,000 families, the Supreme Court has ordered a stay on the eviction of the residents in Haldwani’s Banbhoolpura area. The 29 acres of land is disputed by the Indian Railways as being encroached upon illegally by the residents.
