SRINAGAR: Continuing the anti-encroachment drive in and around the Dal Lake, the Enforcement wing of Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA) today removed several illegal structures inside the lake.
A government spokesperson in a statement said the anti-encroachment drive was led by Dy SP Suhail Reshi, who is also the Enforcement Officer at LAWDA.
Reshi said LAWDA has launched a sustained anti-encroachment drive in and around the Dal Lake to save this heritage site from further destruction.
