As JK administration continues to take control of ‘state land’ across the union territory, the Supreme Court on Friday refused to pass any order seeking a stay on a circular issued by the administration that directed removal of all ‘state land’ owned by UT, Bar and Bench reported.

The Bar and Bench report quoting Justice Shah said they are not passing any order as it could benefit “land grabbers” also.

“We are not passing any order. You instruct them orally to not demolish any houses. But we will not grant a general stay at all so that others do not get benefit,” said Justice Shah.
