Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 9: Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh High Court has granted four weeks to the authorities to implement court directions for removal of encroachments.
In a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by inhabitants of village Hari seeking direction to the respondents to initiate eviction proceedings against those who have encroached kanals of forest land falling in compartment 51-A at village Hari in Surankote tehsil, the Division Bench comprising acting Chief Justice Tashi Rabstan and Justice Rajesh Sekri granted four weeks time to Deputy AG to do the needful in terms of order dated 08.11.2021 (whereby Court directed o file a fresh compliance/status report within one month clearly indicating the time-frame within which the entire forest land would be made free from encroachments and the steps which the Forest Department intends to take to prevent encroachments in future.)
It is worthwhile to mention here that on November 8, 2021 When the PIL came-up for hearing, the Division Bench observed, “in this PIL it has come on record that there are 127 encroachers of the forest land as have been identified by the Forest Department. Accordingly, directions were issued to the Senior Superintendent of Police, Poonch to provide requisite support to ensure eviction of these encroachers from the forest land”.
“It was also directed that the Deputy Commissioner, Poonch shall hold joint meeting with the Divisional Forest Officer, Poonch and the SSP Poonch, so as to draw an action plan to get the land freed from the encroachers. The Principal Chief Conservator of Forest was required to provide requisite funds for the removal of such encroachers”, the DB observed.
The Deputy AAG, appearing for the Forest Department, drew the attention of the court to the compliance report filed by the Divisional Forest Officer, Poonch on September 21, 2020 to show that the Forest Department is not sleeping over the matter and that 12 encroachers have been evicted from the forest land as a consequence of which about 409 kanals and 17 marlas of land has been retrieved.
Accordingly, the DB directed Deputy AG to file a fresh compliance/status report with full details with clear indication as to the time within which the entire forest land would be made free from encroachments and the steps which the Forest Department intend to take to ensure that no encroachment takes place in future.
