A team of the forest department had gone to the riot victim camps and appealed to the families to return to their native places as they had illegally established temporary shelters on forest land but they refused to go, forest department official H V Girish told PTI.

While 55 families are camping in Malakpur, 45 in Noorpur, 35 in Khurgan, 25 in Sunheta and 20 in Akberpur in Shamli district. The forest department had earlier also issued notices to these families to vacate the government land.

Over 60 people were killed and thousands of others displaced in the communal violence in Muzaffarnagar and surrounding districts in August-September last year.
