SC issues interim order to halt Kalanki-Nagdhunga road expansion

Kathmandu, Aug 7: The Supreme Court has issued an interim order to halt the expansion of Kalanki-Nagdhunga road, saying it would cause a huge loss to the people in vicinity if the road section was broadened.

A division bench of Justices Kedar Prasad Chalise and Dr Ananda Mohan Bhattarai on Sunday issued the order in this regard, said Joint-Spokesperson at the SC, Bishwo Raj Poudel.

On February 23 this year, a total of 47 locals, including Sanu Shresha, who could be badly affected with the road expansion, had filed a writ petition at the SC, making the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Minister defendant. The writ had stated that a total of 47 houses would be completely damaged in course of the road expansion, demanding its immediate halt. RSS
