HC asks lawyers to remove encroachments near Rohini court

New Delhi, Apr 28 (PTI) The Delhi High Court today asked lawyers to remove encroachments near the Rohini district courts complex here to ensure that public movement is not impeded.

“You (lawyers) have to set an example for other people.

You cannot break the law. Free movement of the emergency vehicles and people has to be ensured near the court complex,” a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Anu Malhotra said.

The public movement cannot impeded under any circumstance, it said.

The court should be informed with regard to the sanctions granted by the authorities for such construction which have been objected to in this petition, the judges said.

The law should be strictly complied with, they observed while asking the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to file a status report on allotment of land.

The court fixed the matter for further hearing on July 24.

It was hearing a plea filed by lawyer Sudhir Vats who said some lawyers have built temporary structures between the court complex and Rohini Forensic Laboratory causing hindrance to public movement.
