Srinagar- Days after knocking down the outer wall and main gate of a former Ministers residence at Humhama, authorities’ retrieved one kanal land illegally encroached upon by a JKPS officer at Gogo area of Budgam district in central Kashmir on Monday.

Officials told Kashmir Observer that the squad, as part of governments drive against illegal encroachers, demolished the outer wall and a small structure erected on the piece of land, illegally occupied by a police officer, presently posted as a commandant.

They said the one kanal land which was retrieved during the ongoing drive was lying next to the property owned by the said police officer in the name of his wife.

Pertinently, authorities demolished the outer wall and main gate of the residence of National Conference leader, Ali Mohammad Sagar at Humhama near Srinagar Airport last week.

The outer wall, the main gate as well as the entry of the guardroom of the NC leader’s Humhama residence was demolished as part of the government’s ongoing demolition drive against the “land grabbers”.

Contesting governments claims, Ali Mohammad Sagar said the structure was constructed after proper permission from the concerned departments and that the land was his personal property and not the ‘state owned’ as was alleged.
