New Delhi, Oct. 10 (PTI): The Supreme Court today issued notices to former Bihar governor Buta Singh and former Delhi police commissioner Y.S. Dadwal, among others, for unauthorised occupation of government bungalows.
A bench of Justices G.S. Singhvi and S.J. Mukhopadhaya directed all illegal occupants to explain on December 5 why they should not be evicted.
"Time has come for intervention. Let notice be issued to all who are unauthorisedly occupying government accommodation," the bench said.
It asked the Centre to publish a public notice in an English and a Hindi newspaper giving the names of all unauthorised occupants.
"We are prima facie satisfied that that they do not have legal and constitutional rights to occupy the premises after their retirement," the bench said after going through the list of unauthorised occupants placed before it by the Centre.
The list contains names of more than 150 people occupying different types of government accommodation in the capital.
