Kerala HC pulls up state government over Kavalappara landslide rehabilitation


Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Saturday expressed dissatisfaction over the rehabilitation of the survivors of Kavalappara landslide. It said the government has done nothing to restore the land into the previous form and the court cannot continue as a mute spectator anymore.

The comments were made while considering the plea against the 'slow pace' of the rehabilitation works.

The government has been asked to explain what it did to reinstate the land and rehabilitate the families and what can be done if the land cannot be converted.

On August 8, 2019, a monsoon-triggered landslide in Muthappan hill at Kavalappara in the Nilambur assembly constituency in Malappuram buried 59 residents alive.
