Delhi: Illegal House Of Uttarakhand Tunnel Rescue Hero Demolished

In a recent demolition conducted by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), among the houses razed belonged to Vakeel Hasan, a rat-hole miner recognized for his significant contribution to the Uttarakhand tunnel rescue mission last year. The DDA clarified that the demolition on Wednesday aimed to remove illegal encroachments in the Khajuri Khas region of northeast Delhi.

Hasan and other locals claim, however, that they received no advance warning. Hasan conveyed his disappointment by saying, “I am Vakeel Hasan. The reward we got for saving 41 from Uttarakhand’s Silkyara tunnel was that our house had been demolished. I need help. They have caught me, and my children, and are keeping us in a police station. They have also beaten some of us.”

Another miner who took part in the rescue effort, Munna Qureshi, had similar reactions to Hasan, saying, “The government had assured us that they would give us the privilege of sitting at home, but they have snatched our team member’s home.”
