Municipal Corporation punctured the roof of an illegally constructed building alongside Kumhairya talab on Thursday. The 2 storeyed building was built without approval. The teams from Municipal Corporation after puncturing the roof demolished the walls of the building.
As informed by the officers, Urmila Devi went ahead with construction work without taking approval. It may be noted that construction alongside lakes and water bodies has been prohibited by court. Prior to this, notices were sent to Urmila Devi which went ignored and construction work continued. Following this, the team had to take action and compression machines were taken to the site to puncture the roof. The brick wall was demolished with the help of JCB machines.
While the teams were in action, the affected party opposed a lot stating that many hotels are being built alongside lakes but no action is being taken against them.
