High Court orders not to immediately remove illegal residents from river banks

Kathmandu: The Patan High Court has given a short-term interim order not to implement the notice of Kathmandu Metropolis to remove unauthorized structures from the river banks.

The bench of Judge Dhir Bahadur Chand has ordered not to implement the notice of Kathmandu metropolis for the time being.

In addition, the court said that only after the discussion of both parties, it will be decided whether the order will be enforceable.

Earlier, the metropolis published a notice on Saturday and instructed all the stakeholders who are building and occupying structures in the public areas of river banks to remove the structures.
