Goa's Curlies restaurant: Supreme court stays demolition drive for one week
The Goa Costal Zone Management Authority had begun the demolition exercise on Friday morning
The Supreme court on Friday stayed the demolition drive at the Curlies restaurant in Anjuna, North Goa linked to the death of Haryana Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sonali Phogat for violating the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.
The Goa Costal Zone Management Authority had begun the demolition exercise on Friday morning.
The restaurant, 'Curlies', located on Goa's famous Anjuna beach, was in news recently after Phogat was found partying at the outlet hours before her death.
Its owner Edwin Nunes was among five persons arrested in the Phogat death case and he was later granted bail.
"The demolition squad of the district administration along with Anjuna police personnel arrived at the beach around 7.30 am to demolish the restaurant that was built in 'no development zone' in violation of the CRZ norms."
