KOCHI: The issue of a person refusing to leave from the land handed over to Tecom for setting up the SmartCity project will come up at the meeting convened by the Chief Secretary on Tuesday in Thiruvananthapuram, as the efforts by the district administration to evict him failed on Monday.

Even though a team of revenue officials led by special tahsildar Mohandas Pillai reached the 17-cent plot where Sasi has constructed a house, the team returned without eviction as Sasi and his family threatened to commit suicide. The Collector has reported the development to the Chief Minister.

Disciplinary action is in the offing for officials concerned for allowing construction of a house in the 136 acres marked out for SmartCity. Meanwhile, the High Court has stayed the eviction of the family from the plot.
