New Delhi, May 7 (UNI) The Delhi High Court has directed a petitioner who accused a member of the monitoring committee appointed by it of discrimination in demolition of unauthorised construction in her DDA flat to file complaint in the form of an affidavit.

The petitioner, a resident of DDA flat in Lado sarai, had accused that she alone had been targetted in the entire locality for demolition of the unauthorised portion of her DDA flat whereas no action was taken against the remaining 452 flats.

In a letter to the the Lt Governor, the petitioner had alleged that the action against her was taken at the behest of a member of the monitoring committee who is her distant relative.

The woman, seperated from her husband for the last 25 years and staying with her daughter in the flat, has said she receive threating calls from unknown people to vacate the flat immediately.

The person whom the woman has accused is the uncle of her estranged husband.

She has accused the monitoring committee of adopting a ''pick and chose policy'' to serve their vested interest.

Her complaint was forwarded by the LG to the special court of Justices A K Sikri and Rekha Sharma, which is hearing the matters relating to the unauthorised constructions in the capital.

The Court yesterday heard the plea of the petitioner and directed her to file the same in the form of an affidavit.

The petioner had also submitted in the court photographs showing violations and unauthorised construction in the flat of a member of the monitoring committee.

She said that the members of the monitoring committee should clear all unauthorised constructions in their premises first and then should proceed further.

''The discriminatory attitude by the committee shows the abuse of power given to them by the court which should be checked immediately,'' the petitioner alleged.
