“The ASI has issued a demolition order. High Court has for now stayed the demolition order, and that the bungalow is an illegal construction is clear from the ASI demolition order. The illegal bungalow must be demolished under the law”, expressed Rodrigues.
“It is important for the government to set up an SIT to investigate the clear lapse on the part of certain representatives in different authorities that overlooked the construction of the illegal bungalow in an ASI protected area of religious sensitivities”, Rodrigues further elucidated.
