New Delhi: A case of encroachment on High Court land has come to light in the capital Delhi. This encroachment has been done not by anyone else but by a political party. The office of a political party is running on this High Court land. As soon as this matter came to the notice of the Chief Justice Bench of the Supreme Court, orders were given to start the process of eviction of the encroachment. The Supreme Court has passed an order to the National Capital Government and the Registrar General of Delhi High Court to call a meeting in this regard.

Political party created office

A Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud asked the Delhi Chief Secretary, the Public Works Department Secretary and the Finance Secretary of the national capital government to convene a meeting on the issue. The direction comes after advocate K. Parameshwar, appointed as amicus curiae to assist the apex court in the case, said that a political party has set up its office on a piece of land.

The Supreme Court bench also included Justice JB Pardiwala and Justice Manoj Mishra. The Supreme Court had earlier directed the Delhi government to file an affidavit detailing the steps taken, including issuing tenders, for creation of judicial infrastructure in the national capital. It had criticized the national capital government for its lax attitude towards providing funds to the Delhi High Court and district courts for infrastructure development.

Returned the officers who went to take possession

The bench headed by the Chief Justice was informed about the encroachment on the land allotted for the Delhi High Court when the matter related to judicial infrastructure across the country was being heard. In this case, senior advocate K Parameshwar told the Supreme Court bench that the officials of Delhi High Court had gone to take possession of the allotted land but they were not allowed to take possession.

Parameswaran also told the bench that the office of a political party has now been built on that land. But he did not mention the name of any political party. Parameswaran said he did not want to politicize the issue. But it said that the High Court is not able to take back the possession of the land.
