Indore: Encroacher reoccupies DO land, erect boundary wall


Mhow: After Cant land now, DO lands have been a prime target of encroachers, as concerned authorities despite knowing, are too reluctant to look into the matter. About one-and-a-half month ago, officials of DO land warned the encroachers to voluntarily remove illegal constructions in bungalow no 61 within three days or else face eviction.

But, let alone the three-day deadline, months have passed since then and the encroachers are yet to vacate the place. Adding more to it, taking advantage of the administration’s reluctance, they have even constructed a boundary wall to secure the bungalow.

Prior to this, the DO officials had conducted similar anti-encroachment drive twice and removed illegal constructions in bungalow no 61. In the first raid, the officials completely dismantled the illegal constructions, but after the structures were re-erected, on their second drive they just did it on paper and did not remove any illegal structures. Now, as a boundary wall on DO land has been erected, this is the high time action was taken.
