Srinagar, Jun 06: Continuing its anti-encroachment drive, the Enforcement wing of the Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA) Tuesday demolished several illegal structures at Habak, Nigeen, Nishat, Lalbazar and Wangund Teilbal.
In a statement issued to KNS, Enforcement Officer LAWDA said the demolition drive will continue with full vigour to remove all the illegal structures including palatial huts that have come up along the non-permissible zone in the catchment area of Dal Lake.
He said the encroachments are being removed in pursuance to the directions of the High Court, which has called for removal of all the illegal structures from the area.
