Encroachers, who came in large number, were canecharged

OUR STAFF REPORTER BHOPAL The district administration on Friday foiled a bid to encroach the Bada Bagh graveyard.

The police had to canecharge encroachers, who had come

in large number to force their claim on the land.

According to sources, a crowd of around 500 people including women assembled in Bada Bagh graveyard on Friday morning and levelled graves after throwing away tombstones. They also fenced the land after dividing the land into plots, sources added. The encroachers also vandalised

old graves having golden engravings on the tombstones, local residents alleged.

On learning about the encroachment, Collector Nikunj Shrivasatav, ADM Rajneesh Shrivasatav and other officials reached the spot with the police and stopped the encroachment bid. However, the police had to use force after encroachers resisted.
