Anti-encroachment drive in Delhi's Mangolpuri canceled due to unavailability of police force
An anti-encroachment drive scheduled to take place in northwest Delhi's Mangolpuri area was canceled on Friday due to the unavailability of an adequate police force, civic authorities said.
According to an official of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), the drive to remove temporary and permanent encroachment from roads and government land was scheduled in Mangolpuri's Katran Market area.
''The anti-encroachment drive was scheduled in surrounding areas of Katran Market in Mangolpuri on Friday but it was canceled due to unavailability of the adequate police force,'' the official told PTI.
Last month, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) had to cancel its demolition drive in Jasola-Sarita Vihar due to the same reason.
A series of anti-encroachment drives have been conducted by the three civic bodies in different parts of the city in the last month, including Shaheen Bagh, Jahangirpuri, Madanpur Khadar, New Friends Colony, Mangolpuri, Rohini, Gokulpuri, Lodhi Colony, Janakpuri among others.
The drive was stopped after the intervention of the Supreme Court.
