In July this year, the Division Bench of State High Court Comprising Justice Tashi Rabstan and Justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta directed the Divisional Commissioner Jammu to ensure removal of illegal constructions near bed of river Tawi and complete ban on extraction of minerals.

On Dec 04, the Division Bench of State High Court comprising Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Tashi Rabstan had warned to initiate contempt action against all the concerned authorities as the court appointed committee has pointed out that directions regarding removal of encroachments and illegal constructions in and around Tawi river from Nagrota to Mandal Phallian have remained un-complied with.

Nazakat Hussain Khatana, a local community leader told The Kashmiriyat  that there are thousands of structures around the Tawi river, however it is unfortunate and looks like they want to damage the shelter of Muslims initially.

“Why did the bulldozers arrive at this Muslim populated area first, when there are dozens of other areas which are even closer to the Tavi river bed?” he asked. He demanded that the order be revoked as the families have no where else to go.
