New Delhi, Nov 1 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court recently stayed the cutting of a 60-year-old Peepal tree located at Inderpuri in a letter petition filed by Senior Advocate N.Hariharan, whose house is located in the same lane as the said Peepal tree.

A single-judge bench of Justice Rekha Palli while granting the stay stated, “I am of the view that grave and irreparable harm will be caused not only to the environment but also to the residents of the locality if the said tree is permitted to be cut without examining petitioner’s plea that the alleged action is not backed by any valid order.”

The Court had directed the NDMC, the Delhi Police and the Office of Deputy Conservator of Forest to ensure that the aforementioned tree located outside House No. A-7, Inderpuri, New Delhi, is not removed or harmed in any manner.

The petition had been listed upon an urgent mentioning before the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court.

Advocate Abhinav S Aggarwal appearing on the behalf of NDMC had submitted that an order has been passed by the Office of Deputy Conservator of Forest, permitting the relocation of the said tree. He had however conceded that he was not in a position to give any details of the above-mentioned order.

Advocate Gautam Narayan appearing on the behalf of Delhi Police also submitted that he was not in a position to inform the Court about any such order.

The Court has directed the petitioner to file a formal petition incorporating the relevant facts and grounds, in accordance with the Rules by November 9, 2021. The matter has been listed for further hearing on November 11./ILNS/KR/SNG/
