Bricks thrown, tyres burnt as Jalandhar MC arrives for demolition

Tribune News Service
Jalandhar, January 15

As a team of the Municipal Corporation on Tuesday reached Latifpura to carry out a demolition drive, the illegal occupants of the 16-kanal property of the government opposed it by pelting bricks and burning tyres. 

The residents, including men, women and youth damaged three JCB machines that reached the spot.  

The protest could not be controlled despite a heavy posse of police at the site.  

The property worth crores of the Jalandhar Improvement Trust (JIT) has been allegedly occupied by some gujjars for over two decades.

Local Bodies Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu during his last visit to JIT in Jalandhar had ordered execution of the drive to get the property evicted.
