Jewar airport: Allahabad HC rejects farmers' petition to stop land acquisition

Noida: The Allahabad High Court Monday rejected a petition filed by over 100 hundred farmers from Gautam Buddh Nagar who wanted back their land acquired for an upcoming airport in Jewar, according to their lawyer.

The writ petition, filed on behalf of 113 farmers, most of them from Kishorpur village in Jewar area, was made on February 23 and taken up on February 25, following which April 8 was marked for hearing in the case, said lawyer Ganga Dhar Shukla.

"The matter was taken up by a double-judge bench of Justice Pankaj Kumar Jaiswal and Justice Y K Shrivastava which rejected it this afternoon citing lack of any merit," he told PTI over the phone.
"The farmers are not satisfied with this decision and are mulling to move the Supreme Court to get their land back," Shukla said.

The advocate said the petitioners had moved the high court to get their land back not for enhanced compensation and wanted the land acquisition process to be stopped.
