This deadline was later extended to November 11 by the court on October 1, a day before the demolition scheduled by the civic body.
The civic body is now considering the possibility of filing a contempt of court petition in SC against Campa Cola residents for violating their undertakings.
Additional municipal commissioner Mohan Adtani said: “The Supreme Court’s order is clear.We will wait for another one to two days for residents to vacateand allow the demolition of the illegal flats. If the resistance to vacate continues, we will consider such an action.”
Adtani said the planned schedule for demolition would continue on Wednesday.
“The residents’ defiance of the apex court order is shocking. They cannot brazenly get away with flouting the order,” said a senior civic official, who did not wish to be identified. “We are preparing to represent our side with evidence of their resistance to our demolition proceedings.”
Residents on Tuesday locked the two gates of the compound,parked their cars in such a manner as to not allow BMC vehicles to enter, formed human barricadesinside and outside the gates and prevented civic officials from entering the complex.
