New Delhi, Feb 21 (PTI) The Delhi High Court today soughtDDA''s response on Jangpura RWA''s plea alleging that the agencyhas failed to comply with the court''s earlier order to rebuilda wall around the area where a mosque built on government landwas recently demolished.

Issuing a notice to DDA, Justice G S Sistani sought itsreply by March 1 as to why the agency failed to rebuild thewall as per this court''s January 17 directions.

The court was hearing an application filed by JangpuraRWA that DDA had failed to rebuild the wall around the demisedarea as a result the possession of the razed area being takenback by members of the Noor Charitable Society.

The residents also sought the court for withdrawal of itsearlier order granting concession to the Society allowing 10of its members to offer prayers for two months.

Meanwhile, the Society members today assured the courtthrough an undertaking that only 10 persons would be allowedto offer namaz at the place marked for the Society member tooffer prayer.

Seeking cancellation of the concession granted to atleast 10 people to offer namaz on the 2.5 feet area left forthe Society, the residents claimed members of the Societywere violating the court''s previous order.

Following a court direction on a contempt plea ofJangpura residents, DDA had demolished the religiousstructure last month and reclaimed the land.

The court, however, subsequently allowed only 10 peopleto offer the prayers for two months and also directed DDA tobuild a wall around the area.
