It is quite obvious that if the builder concerned was acting legally he wouldn't have waited for, midnight to sneak in with the JCBs. With legitimate orders in hand, he could easily have gone there with police force and had the house vacated. If this was not done it showed that the builder was guilty. The people of the area, who led the protests, should be knowing who he is. Have they proceeded further in the matter? This could one day disturb the peace of, the area if the cops do not promptly act and stop the defaulters from doing any further damage without legal documents. This midnight knock by builders used to be a notorious reality in the past. It would be best for the new administrators to think about the feasibility of banning the movement of all JCBs between dusk and dawn.
That way, forcible eviction of lawful occupants from their houses by the dangerous elements among builders lobby will not be possible. In the past the police had acquired a very notorious reputation when it would tear off even) High Court orders granted in favor of a party and, then allow the aggressive party to demolish the building, claiming that they had not received any orders. This was done usually on a Saturday evening so that the aggrieved party may not be able to approach the court. We hope that those horrible days will not be revived.
