Petitioner seeks reopening of Jalandhar mall

Chandigarh, September 29

The action of “unilaterally” locking up The Galleria, DLF, Jalandhar, a shopping mall-cum-office complex, today came under judicial scanner with a petition challenging the same on no less than 20 grounds, and raising questions on law on the powers of the state government to exercise administrative and supervisory control over such projects.

Taking up the petition filed by Trilochan Singh Anand through counsels Kabir Sarin and Raghav Dayal Gupta, the Bench of Justice SN Satyanarayana and Justice Archana Puri has put the DLF, the state of Punjab and other respondents on notice. The Bench issued notice regarding stay, while fixing November 4 as the next date of hearing in the matter. — TNS
