A bench of Justices B. N. Aggrawal and Aftab Alam said, We cannot rely on newspaper reports. You give us the details and we will examine the issue. Give us specific details. You can also file a contempt petition if you feel that demolitions have been carried out.
The SC granted the petitioner Mithilesh Kumar a week’s time to submit the details and listed the matter in the mentioning list for next Tuesday.
