RCB undertakes anti-encroachment operation


Rawalpindi— Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) on Tuesday confiscated five truckload goods from different markets in its operation against encroachments.
According to RCB spokesman Qasir Mahmood, the Cantonment Executive Officer (CEO) Dr Saima Shah has directed to intensify the operation to make RCB areas encroachment free.
The operation is being conducted on daily basis while permanent and temporary encroachments are being removed, he added.
He said, encroachments particularly in congested markets have been removed bringing a relief to commuters. The illegal structures not only block the roads but also cause a lot of inconvenience to the customers visiting the busy markets.
He said, encroachments have been removed from Saddar, Chungi No 22, Gawalmandi, Masrial Road, TenchBhatta, Chor Chowk, Bakra Mandi, Allahabad, Naseerabad and other areas.
Handcarts, counters, chairs, tables and other items of encroachers have been confiscated which would not be returned to the encroachers but to be auctioned.—APP
