Gurugram, June 10

All set to execute the Supreme Court’s orders to demolish 10,000 illegal structures in Khori in Faridabad, the local police today started massive preparations in this regard.

From seeking help of other district cops and even the Delhi Police on the need to seal the village hours before the demolition, policemen were out to ensure peace and avert any clash in the area.

A mock drill in this regard was carried out in the village today where hundreds of cops gathered to rehearse their course of action for the demolition exercise.

Meanwhile, seeing so many cops led to panic among villagers, who thought that demolition was to happen today. Many even started packing their household things and fleeing, while others gathered to block cops.

The Supreme Court had on Monday directed Haryana and the Faridabad Municipal Corporation to remove all encroachments, consisting of around 10,000 residential constructions, in the Aravalli forest area near a village.

“We are taking all steps to ensure that official work is executed unhindered. Nobody will be allowed to disrupt law and order,” said Police Commissioner OP Singh.
