Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain a plea against a Jammu and Kashmir government circular directing all Deputy Commissioners to remove encroachments on Union Territory land, including Roshni land and Kachharie land, by January 31. The petitioner eventually sought to withdraw the petition and was allowed to do so by the Court. During the previous hearing, the bench had advised the petitioners to restrict their prayers to the status quo rather than a blanket stay on the circular.
