HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad High Court has directed the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to demolish portions of the two buildings which are constructed in violation of the sanctioned plan by the family members of MLA KP Vivekanand, who represents Qutubullapur constituency, in the city.

  The court directed the GHMC to file an action-taken-report before the registry along with the photographs of demolition by June 15.

Justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy passed the order on a petition filed by KM Pratap, a resident of Qutubullapur, alleging that the MLA and his family members have constructed a huge commercial complex adjacent to his plot without permissions from the GHMC.

Further, the judge directed the GHMC commissioner to identify the officers responsible and initiate departmental proceedings against them for dereliction of duty pertaining to failure to inspect and stop the illegal construction, and file a report before the registry by June 15.   

While refusing to entertain the plea of Narayana Educational Society, which is running a college in the alleged illegal portions of the building, to grant time, the judge directed to vacate the building by June 1. Justice Reddy found fault with the attitude of authorities in taking action against illegal constructions and also their response towards the court when it sought an affidavit from the GHMC on the plea.
