Demolition drive at Malik Market amid tight security, traffic blocked

Jammu: An anti-encroachment drive began at the Malik market in Jammu amid tight security arrangements on Saturday, officials said.

The authorities have engaged three JCBs to dismantle a car showroom at the market, said an official.

The police has stopped the movement of traffic and pedestrians from both sides of the road to prevent gathering of people at the site of demolition.

The administration of the Union Territory launched an eviction drive against illegal encroachment by ‘big land owners’ and ‘influential’ people and nearly 23,000 hectares have been retrieved during the ongoing anti-encroachment drive in the Jammu division.
