HC stays eviction of Delhi Flying Club till Mar 19

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today said that an eviction order passed against the prestigious Delhi Flying Club (DFC) directing it to move out of the Safdarjung Airport here be not enforced till March 19, and sought replies from the Centre and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) on the issue.

"You (the authorities) file your reply, whether they (DFC) are entitled for injunction or not. Meanwhile, I am not saying anything, but do not take any precipitative action against the club," Justice Rajiv Shakdher said.

The court issued notices to the authorities seeking their reply to the plea of the DFC, which was established in 1928, against the eviction notice issued by the AAI.

The court has now fixed the matter for further hearing on March 19.

Senior advocate Sidharth Luthra, appearing for the club, moved the high court after the Supreme Court granted them interim protection of two weeks against an eviction order and had asked it to assail the order before the appropriate forum.
