HYDERABAD:Taking a serious view at the civic authorities for remaining silent even when the court orders are violated, the Hyderabad High Court has directed the GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) officials to submit a report pertaining to the case of Narayana educational institute situated at DD colony in the city.
Justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy was dealing with a petition filed by the colony residents’ association challenging the school management’s decision to run the commercial educational institute in a residential zone without obtaining any permission from the authorities concerned.
Advocate V Ravichandran, appearing for the petitioner association, brought to the notice of the Court that the college was sealed twice by the GHMC for running the educational institute in a residential area. Besides, a single judge of the High Court had even ordered the GHMC to restrain the school management from running the school in the area.
Surprised with the developments, Justice Nagarjuna Reddy directed the GHMC officials to file counter affidavit in the case. The GHMC authorities, in their affidavit, admitted that the management had indeed broke open the seal they attached.
Meanwhile, the school students and their parents have filed another petition with a plea not to disturb them for now.
The judge directed the registry to club both the petitions and posted the matter to January 18 for further hearing.
