Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court here on Friday disposed off a public interest litigation (PIL), alleging encroachment done by Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee president Arjun Modhvadia and his brother Ramdev Modhvadia in front of their house in Porbandar district.
The division bench comprising Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and justice J B Pardiwala today disposed off the PIL after the chief officer of Porbandar Nagarpalika informed the court that the alleged encroachment has been removed.

The Porbandar Nagarpalika has issued notice and later removed the alleged encroachment at Bhojeswar road area in the city, as there is no grievance left with the petitioner, the officials informed the high court.

After hearing the submission of the civic body, the State High Court disposed off the PIL and also asked the authorities to ensure that no such illegal construction should take place in near future.

The PIL, filed by a Porbandar- based social activist Prakash Unadkat through his counsel Pranav Dave, had alleged that GPCC chief and his brother, had put up illegal construction on public road without taking any prior approval of the competent authority, which is not only illegal but also blocks the road.

In the PIL, the petitioner also alleged civic body`s inaction in removing the encroachment.
