In a joint effort, the district administration and municipal corporation on Friday razed 100 shops and arrested more than 100 people in Board Bazar in an anti-encroachment drive.
The drive was launched by Additional commissioner Asad Haroon on the directives of the deputy commissioner. It was facilitated by the city’s municipal corporation authorities.
Heavy machinery was used to raze the 100 shops constructed on roadsides and on the railway, with more than 100 persons arrested. The operation continued for more than four hours.
Additional Assistant Commissioner Irfanuddin, municipal corporation official Muhammad Rahman Khattak and Tax Superintendent Muhammad Ayaz Durani along with a heavy contingent of police officers were present during the drive.
“The operation against encroachments will continue around the city and no concessions will be given to anyone in this regard,” said Haroon.
