SC stays Campa Cola flats’ demolition after media siege

The Supreme Court today stayed the demolition of flats, which were illegally constructed more than two decades ago in the Mumbai Campa Cola society, reported the PTI.

A bench headed by Justice G S Singhvi passed the order after around 140 families living in the apartments had barricaded themselves in the compound to resist eviction to massive media attention, reported the WSJ.

The SC said that the residents in the illegal flats should move out in seven months and that the Bombay Municipal Corporation should delay the demolition until 31 May 2014, reported the Hindustan Times.

According to @Spread_Law on Twitter, Singhvi was “badly disturbed by the developments last evening”, with the disturbance remaining after the judge woke after four hours of sleep at 3:30am.

Senior counsel Fali Nariman had mentioned the matter.
