Kochi: In a setback to MLA PV Anvar, the Kerala High Court ordered on Friday to recover the excess land possessed by him before next hearing. The court issued the order while dismissing a plea submitted by the Thamarassery land board chairman seeking time to recover the land.

Later, the court also sought an explanation from the government over the action taken as per the order while considering a petition seeking contempt of court proceedings against the government.
