The large piece of land had been occupied by the encroachers for years.
A house, along with boundary wall, shades for animals, and other buildings had been constructed at the encroached site.
Earlier on Sunday, the Authority had conducted a mega anti-encroachment operation along Islamabad Expressway and demolished illegal concrete and temporary kiosk built at green belt.
