Hundreds of residents of Gyaspur Basti are staying under tarpaulin tents after their houses were demolished.

New Delhi: Sitting under a tarpaulin tent at Gyaspur Basti, in Sarai Kale Khan, a visibly worried and disturbed Deepu (16) is continuously trying to call a number. A few yards away under a tree, her equally distressed father, mother and brother are discussing something urgent. The family has been staying under the tent since their house was bulldozed by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on August 8.

Deepu, who completed her 10+2 this year, is frantically calling the advocate that helped them get a stay from the Delhi High Court (HC) on the DDA demolition drive in the slums on June 28 following a plea filed by her family and 10 other families. According to the DDA, the slums on the Yamuna floodplains are part of its eco-restoration plantation drive under a rejuvenation project.
