Islamabad—Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration has asked those encroaching the busy roads of city and causing inconvenience for road users to remove encroachments by their own otherwise they would have to face disciplinary action along with confiscation of their goods. On Wednesday, teams of ICT removed encroachments from Bhara Kahu, Simly Dam Road, Nargis Road, and Murree road through coordination of traders and other stakeholders.
Special teams headed by Magistrate Abdul Hadi and Assistant Commissioner Muhammad Waqas conducted this operation in Bhara Kahu area which has been appreciated by trader’s community and local people.
