Illegal colony: One booked in Hoshiarpur

Hoshiarpur, September 26

A coloniser has been booked by the Sadar police under the Punjab Apartment and Property Regulation Act (PAPRA) on the basis of a complaint by the Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation (MC) here.

An allegedly illegal colony in the name of Guru Nanak Colony was being raised at Adamwal Road, Bahadurpur, for the past nine months. The owner, Avtar Singh of Bariana village, had applied to the corporation for regularisation of the colony but the MC found the application to be contrary to the rules and on June 16, the civic body wrote to the colony owner, asking him to stop the construction. — OC
