Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, Apr 23 (UNI) The Supreme Court today directed the owner of Appu Ghar at Pragati Maidan to hand over the possession of the land within three weeks to the Supreme Court.

A bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat was also informed by DDA that it cannot allot alternative land in Delhi to ''International Amusement Park Private Limited'', owner of Appu Ghar for setting up of an amusement park.

The amusement park at Appu Ghar was set up in the seventies by an NRI with the permission of then Prime Minister late Mrs Indira Gandhi.

Appu Ghar has already been closed down under the orders of the Supreme Court which has directed the DDA to hand over the possession of twelve acres of land to the Supreme Court for construction of administrative blocks and an auditorium.

With the stand taken by the DDA in the Supreme Court, the last hope of amusement park being shifted to some other place in Delhi has ended.
