In the beginning, inhabitants asserted that five individuals were trapped in the impacted residence and suffered serious injuries. Nevertheless, officials promptly denied these allegations, attributing the stone-pelting incident to rumors circulating among locals concerning the demolition of their residences. Acting swiftly, the police sealed off the entire area and even used mild force to restore order. Indramani Tripathi stated, “Contrary to the rumors, the structures being demolished were commercial properties, not residential. The Supreme Court had issued a stay on the demolition of these commercial structures until March 4th.”

The Vice-Chancellor of LDA attributed the stone-pelting incident to the residents’ fear and apprehension, which were fueled by rumors regarding the alleged intention of the LDA squad to demolish their homes. However, in compliance with the orders of the high court, the LDA has chosen not to take any action against residential properties until March 31.
