High Court scraps govt order to acquire Cheruvally estate

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Friday scrapped the government order to acquire the Cheruvally estate land for the Sabarimala airport.

The HC squashed the government order pointing out that it did not follow the conditions of the Land Acquisition Act. The order was challenged at the court by the Ayana Charitable Trust, representing the Believers' Church, who had claimed ownership over the estate.

The court had earlier stayed the the June 18 order issued by the revenue principal secretary to take over the land for the proposed airport.
