On the other hand, the opponents identified as Ashok Nathuji Khade and his family claimed that they have won a long pending case from the High Court and hence, they are rightful orders. The Khade family claimed that they had come to reclaim their property along with a Court Bailiff. However, their action of forcibly trying to oust the present residents using force and damaging property is seen as taking law into their own hands.
