A bench of the Apex Court, headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar was hearing the case involving Khori Gaon Residents Welfare Association's plea against Municipal Corporation of Faridabad, which had to comply with the Apex Court's direction to demolish the illegal constructions and houses built in the Aravali region in Khori Gaon.
