The Gujarat high court stayed the construction of a jewellery showroom in Porbandar because it was within 100m of Kirti Mandir, the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi adjacent to his birthplace. A bench of Chief Justice R S Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi ordered that construction work is halted in response to a PIL by local resident objecting to it. The petitioner, Shashikant Raniga, claimed that the construction was underway without permission from the archaeology department and was within 100m of Kirti Mandir, a monument of national significance.
