New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday refused to stay its order directing Haryana and the Faridabad municipal corporation to remove encroachments, consisting of around 10,000 residential constructions, in Aravali forest area near Khori village, saying “we want our forest land to be cleared”.

A bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari asked the state and the civic body to comply with its June 7 direction in this regard.

The top court was hearing a plea seeking stay on the demolition of residential structures in the village.

The apex court on June 7 had directed the state and the Faridabad municipal corporation to remove “all encroachments” in Aravali forest area near the village, saying “land grabbers cannot take refuge of rule of law” and talk of “fairness”.

It had also sought compliance report from the state government officials after removing all encroachments from the forest land near Lakarpur Khori village in Faridabad district within six weeks.
