Bombay HC seeks reply on land acquisition in Uran area

The Bombay High Court today sought a reply from the Raigad collector on a PIL which demands speedy acquisition of private land around Naval installations in neighbouring Uran area.



Mumbai: The Bombay High Court today sought a
reply from the Raigad collector on a PIL which demands speedy
acquisition of private land around Naval installations in
neighbouring Uran area.

Petitioner Nagaraj Sheth, former municipal councillor,
claims that state government is sitting on Navy`s proposal to
acquire these lands, and convert the area into a buffer zone.
Naval station `INS Tunir` and an armament depot are
located in this area.

In the wake of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, creation of
a buffer zone has become all the more important. Or else,
unauthorised constructions would mushroom in the area,
petitioner`s lawyer advocate Pradip Patil said.

The High Court has sought reply from the collector within
two weeks.
