Muzaffarnagar: Riot-displaced given 3-day ultimatum to leave camps
Muzaffarnagar: Displaced villagers who have been living in camps on government land in neighbouring Shamli district since the Muzaffarnagar communal riots in September last year have been asked to vacate them within three days by authorities.
Subdivisional Magistrate Suresh Kumar Mishra today said that a team of government officials visited the camps yesterday and "appealed" to the riot-displaced people to return to their native villages within three days.
"They would not be allowed to stay on government land. They have been asked to vacate the camps," he told reporters.
These camps are located in Malakpura, Narpur Khurgan, Akbarpur and Sunethi villages in Shamli district.
More than 250 families, who fled their homes after the communal riots that claimed over 60 lives, are believed to be staying in camps in these places in Shamli district, 100 km from the national capital.
