The Bombay High Court on Thursday summoned the Mumbai suburban district collector to court on September 19 over the demolition of a crematorium in Erangal beach in suburban Malad without giving a hearing to the fisherfolk who had built it.

A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Madhav Jamdar was hearing a petition filed by one Chetan Vyas raising concerns over unauthorized construction of a Hindu crematorium on the beach by the fishing community.

The PIL claimed the construction was in violation of Coastal Regulation Zones (CRZ) rules.In 2021, the HC had directed for a joint inspection to be carried out there by the concerned officials from Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA), the district collectorate and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
