Demolish Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society, says Bombay HC

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court, on Friday, ordered the demolition of of controversial 31-storeyed Adarsh Housing Society building in South Mumbai.

HC upheld a 2011 order of the Ministry of Environment and asked for a thorough probe in the case.

“The court has upheld the order of the ministry of January 16, 2011, to demolish the building within three months, but it was challenged by the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society,” said Y.P. Singh, one of the lawyers involved in the case.

The high court has also ordered an inquiry against the politicians, ministers and officials involved in the scam and allowed the Maharashtra government three months to appeal against it in the Supreme Court.
