Faridabad, September 14

In a major demolition drive carried out on Monday, the Municipal Corporation Faridabad (MCF) razed as many as 1200 residential constructions which had come up on its land in Lakkadpur-Khori village located in the Aravali forest area.

While land measuring 30 acres was recovered, the authorities deployed as many as 1500 cops on duty for the drive.

More than a dozen JCBs and a staff of about 50 people was used for the demolition drive.

Around 500 cops were requisitioned from other districts. According to officials concerned, 85 persons were detained in order to prevent protest or problem during the demolition.

The encroachments here have come up in the past two decades. Though the authorities claim that demolition was carried as per the direction and permission from the Supreme Court, protesters said that it was wrong as the residents were not rehabilitated prior to demolition as per the order of the high court passed several years ago.
