CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday made it clear that if the Haryana police and local authorities failed to stop construction activities in prohibited zones around the Indian Air Force stations in Gurgaon and Faridabad, it would order the deployment of paramilitary forces to check the encroachments.

The court has also asked the inspector general of police to take strict action against the encroachers and appear before the high court on September 16 with a status report.

The orders were issued after the Air Force lawyer informed the court that despite several directives from the high court, encroachers were still carrying out fresh construction work in the prohibited areas of Gurgaon and Faridabad Air Force station.

The issue had reached the HC through a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by one Suersh Goyal of Faridabad seeking removal of constructions from the 100-metre area around the IAF Station, Dabua in Faridabad, which is a protected zone under provisions of the Work of Defence Act. The HC had also taken cognizance of a similar issue on the construction activities within the restricted zone of the ammunition depot of IAF in Gurgaon.

So far, the HC has passed several directives on the issue to stop illegal constructions. On October 15, 2012, the HC had also directed that if the local administration failed to control the constructions, all those responsible for that would be liable to face contempt of court proceedings.

On January 31, the HC had ordered the Union cabinet secretary to constitute a high-level committee with the state of Haryana and ministry of defence as its members to find a solution to the problem following which a six-member panel was constituted by the Centre.
