In Mumbai, civic body razed over 1000 huts and shanties along Tansa pipeline between Ghatkopar and Vidyavihar in suburban Mumbai. The residents of these shanties were transferred to Mahul transit camp. The demolition was carried out in accordance to Bombay High Court order back in 2009 to remove the settlement within 10 metres along either sides of pipeline. The residents however have a different story to tell. After being uprooted from their homes, these people alleged that government has dumped them in a industrial area that is affecting their health adversely.
