The District Town Planning Department and Town Planning Division of the Karnal Municipal Corporation (KMC) demolished a farmhouse of gangster Daler Kotia in Assandh and eight shops of drug peddler Gulzar Singh at Ram Nagar in the city today.

A large number of police personnel, led by the CIA-2 in charge inspector Mohan Lal, were deployed at the sites to ensure law and order. As per the authorities, the buildings had been constructed illegally and notices were served to these.

Kotia is in the USA and 11 cases of extortion, attempt to murder etc have been registered against him. In one case, he has been declared a proclaimed offender (PO), said inspector Mohan Lal. Gulzar is in jail and 23 cases under the NDPS Act have been registered against him, he added.
