Supreme Court stays removal of encroachment near Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura

The demolition campaign being carried out by the railway authorities to clear encroachments close to Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura has been put on hold by the Supreme Court for ten days.

According to the petitioner, people have lived on the land where the railway is removing the encroachment for more than 100 years. This led to a demand for the action to be stopped.

According to the petitioner, there had been habitation on the property where the railroad was eliminating the encroachment for more than a century. On the basis of this, a request to cease the action was made.

The petitioner informed the court that the Railways had already cleared up many encroachments. There are currently 70–80 remaining homes; therefore, destruction should be halted. Immediately after the apex court stayed the action, the Railways were asked to respond. However, no one was present on behalf of the Railways in the Supreme Court during the hearing.
