Shopian, Sep 4, CNS:  Continuing its drive against illegal constructions, the administration razed 64 ‘illegal’ structures including 15 shopping complexes to ground in South Kashmir’s Shopian district on Friday.

    Tehsildar Shopian Shakeel Ahmed Ganaie told CNS that all these structures had come up in brazen violation of Court orders near Rambi Nallah of the district. “We after seeking help from police and civil  administration demolished  structures including 12 plinths, 16 houses, 15 shopping complexes and 21 sheds,” he said adding that some construction material dumped near Nallah was also seized by the administration.

     Tehsildar Shopian made a fervent appeal to the Irrigation and Flood Control, Forest Department and local Revenue officials to join hands in the demolition drive so that ill designs of violators and offenders could be foiled beforehand.
