In his public interest litigation, petitioner Manohar Lal Sharma cited the September 29, 2009 order of the Apex Court directing all collectors and officers of states that no unauthorized construction shall be carried out or permitted in the name of temple, church, mosque or gurdwara, etc on public streets, public parks or other public places.

The UP government had placed Nagpal under suspension on July 27 for allegedly ordering the demolition of a wall reportedly belonging to a religious structure.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party leader Ahmed Hasan on Tuesday asked the suspended officer to apologize. He said that media and other officers were harming their own credibility by taking up her cause.
