New Delhi : The National Human Rights Commission on Monday issued notice to the Delhi government and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) following reports of families who are yet to be rehabilitated nine years after being evicted during the expansion of Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal-3 (T3).

During the expansion of IGI (T3), 122 Dalit families residing in the Nangal Dewat village of Delhi were ‘forcefully’ evicted. Though as part of rehabilitation, 63 families got alternate accommodations, 59 families are still waiting to be rehabilitated.

The commission has issued notice to the Delhi government and the AAI, calling for reports within six weeks on the steps taken — or proposed to be taken — for relief and rehabilitation of these families.

The commission noted that these families have knocked the doors of almost every concerned authority in the Centre and the government of Delhi but to no avail.               —IANS
