New Delhi, Aug 13 (PTI) "What we have done to this city is a criminal act," an anguished Delhi High Court has said while strongly deploring alleged encroachments of forest land in Neb Sarai village in south Delhi.
A bench, headed by Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal, said that no encroachments could be permitted in the ridge areas of the national capital as these were primary "natural features".
It said it was shocking that forest land fell prey to illegal constructions and encroachments.
