NEW DELHI: Municipal Corporation of Delhi demolished illegal construction in 16 properties in south Delhi on Friday. It cracked down on unauthorized extension of structures in Chirag Dilli, Paryavaran Complex, Freedom Fighter Colony, Anand Niketan and adjoining areas, and razed the added portions.
After the demolition, the floors/properties were no longer inhabitable. “Roof slabs were punctured and the illegal structures were rendered uninhabitable. People encroach on land without realizing they are violating building bylaws. The demolition was carried out with the help of local police,” said an MCD official. The drive will continue till next week in the south zone.
