SUKKUR, Nov 7 (Pakistan Point News - APP - 07th Nov, 2016 ) : An anti-encroachment team of Sukkur Railways accompanied by the railway and district police on Monday launched the anti-encroachment operation aimed at removing houses and shops illegally constructed on the railway land near Shalimar Railway crossing. They removed the illegally constructed houses and shops on both sides of the railway tracks. According to the Divisional Superintendent (DS), Sukkur Railways, Aijaz Buriro, the notices were issued to the encroachers, but when they failed to remove the encroachments, we were compelled to take action.
When his attention was drawn towards the encroachments constructed by influential persons, he said `the authorities are not going to spare anybody, no matter how influential they are'. He said the anti-encroachment operation is being carried out to implement the apex court's order and, therefore, it will be done across the board."We have issued notices to all the encroachers but some of the influential encroachers have tampered the record and we are going to take care of them, too", he added. He assured that the operation is not going to stop until the removal of all the encroachments. APP/jml/fc/anm
