SC said “Task Force Set Up to pressure”

The Supreme Court on Friday said a special task force, set up pursuant to its order to oversee enforcement of laws on unauthorised constructions and remove encroachments in Delhi, appeared be under some kind of “pressure”.

A bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta referred to the report filed by the court-appointed monitoring committee which has claimed that the STF was neither communicating with them, nor keeping them informed about their actions.

Additional Solicitor General ANS Nadkarni, appearing for the centre, said he would file an affidavit on the NITI Aayog’s report which had said that 21 cities, including Delhi, might run out of groundwater by 2020.
