Indore (Madhya Pradesh): In its ongoing drive against illegal structures and land mafia, Indore Municipal Corporation, on Saturday, carried out a demolition drive in several areas of the city.

Officials said that one drive was conducted against the encroachment made by Praveen Ajmera in Chota Bangadda. He had built a G+2 building on 1,500 sq.ft and, in the basement of the building, he had developed several shops for commercial use and was using the two floors for residential purposes.

Similarly, Usha Ajmera had also made commercial shops on a piece of land measuring 1500 sq.ft. Commercial activities were being carried out in these shops.

IMC officials said that, for both the plots, the owners had not taken permission from IMC and developed them illegally. They had developed 12 shops in all on both the plots. The IMC team demolished the entire structures developed illegally on these plots.

In another drive against buildings developed by goons in the city, the IMC team demolished the building of Sundar Jatav. IMC officials said that Jatav’s house—developed on a plot of 1100 sq.ft in the Nihalpur Mundi area—was demolished.
