The Delhi high court has ordered demolition of unauthorised construction on government land near Rai Pithora Fort, which is named after the second-last Hindu king of Delhi, Prithviraj Chauhan.

A bench headed by Justice GS Sistani directed the South Delhi Municipal Corporation to file a report by April 23, showing that the court’s order to demolish the illegal structure by March 19 has been complied with.

The high court also directed that police protection be provided, if required, to the people who would be part of the demolition team.

The court’s order was passed while hearing a plea filed by Delhi resident Paramjeet Singh seeking demolition of the illegal construction.
