Displaced villagers who have been living in camps on government land in neighbouring Shamli district since the Muzaffarnagar communal riots in September last year have been asked to vacate them within three days by authorities.

Subdivisional Magistrate Suresh Kumar Mishra on Saturday said that a team of government officials visited the camps on Friday and “appealed” to the riot-displaced people to return to their native villages within three days.

“They would not be allowed to stay on government land. They have been asked to vacate the camps,” he told reporters.

These camps are located in Malakpura, Narpur Khurgan, Akbarpur and Sunethi villages in Shamli district.
