The Supreme Court is likely to hear on Monday a fresh plea seeking a direction to authorities not to evict any forest dwellers and to set up an SIT to look into alleged illegal acquisition of tribals' land. 

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna had on March 5 taken cognisance of the plea seeking a direction from the apex court to the Centre not to allot possession of any forest land belonging to tribals to anyone other than 'adivasi' residing in that particular area.

The apex court, while dealing with other similar pending petition, had on February 28 stayed its February 13 order directing 21 states to evict neraly 12 lakh illegal forest dwellers whose claims over the forest land have been rejected by authorities.
