Some 350 families are defying eviction notice at a posh residential area in Kochi, as the deadline to vacate their flats in five buildings ends today. The families say justice has been denied to them. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has also called an all-party meeting in state capital Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday. Now, a former judge of the Kerala High Court has backed the residents in their fight against the eviction notice. Justice Kamal Pasha said he believes "principles of natural justice" have been violated in the legal process.
