BANGALORE: As part of its anti-encroachment drive, BBMP demolished five structures in Bandemata Layout near Kengeri.
BBMP started its drive early Wednesday morning and demolished all the structures including a commercial building and houses that had encroached upon a 30-foot-wide drain.
The sites on the ‘rajakaluve’ (primary canal) were meant for the development of parks, but a few illegal constructions had come up, encroaching upon the ‘rajakaluve’.
BBMP razed constructions that had come up on survey numbers 192 and 193 and recovered property approximately worth Rs 3 crore. The drive was carried out with co-ordination of local police. About 50 BBMP men were part of the team.
Residents alleged that there was no intimation from BBMP. Such sudden drives put them to inconvenience, they added.
