A Delhi court upheld an executive magistrate’s order and directed a landowner to remove a mobile tower and a generator from his building after his neighbour complained that it was causing “nuisance and disturbance”.

Refusing to grant relief to the owner of the building, the Additional Sessions Judge TR Naval court said, “I do not find any infirmity or impropriety in the order of sub divisional magistrate (SDM). Therefore, revision petition is not maintainable at this stage and is hereby dismissed.”

Satya Prakash, a resident of East Delhi, had filed a complaint to SDM of Preet Vihar saying Hargyan Singh had installed a mobile tower along with a generator on his building’s roof as a result cracks had developed in the building and the generator “was creating nuisance and disturbance.

The SDM in its February 17 order had directed Singh to remove the tower and generator from the roof within a week and explain why the order should not be made absolute, if he raises objection.

The SDM had also sought a compliance report from Singh that he had stopped creating the said nuisance.
