Stating that every person has a right to life, the state cannot evict any landless person from a land even if he did not have title of the land, a division bench of high court observed and barred the government from removing residents of Sahava village in Churu district who inhabited a johar land.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice Dinesh Mehta directed the government to verify the nature of encroachment as well as the land and make arrangements to allot land and a building in case of encroachers being landless for 3-6 months.

The court gave these directions while hearing an appeal by the residents of the village at Taranagar in Churu district settled on a johar land who challenged the eviction order by a single bench of the high court.

Moti Singh Rajpurohit, representing the petitioners, said over 300 houses had been built in the village a long time ago but few people approached the high court terming it to be encroachment demanding that encroachers be removed.

“The single bench had given directions to identify those encroachments, demolish them and clear the land. These encroachers then challenged the order in the high court and prayed for alternative arrangements,” said Rajpurohit.
