In an early-morning operation on Wednesday, Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) as a part of its demolition drive recovered one-acre property worth Rs 6 crores in areas across the City.

According to BDA Executive Engineer Mr Venugopala Rao, BDA had come to know about the encroachments and unauthorised constructions at sites in Rajajinagar 5th block and Peenya Industrial suburbs for the past several years.

Meanwhile, the unauthorised construction which was demolished at Rajajinagar was mostly temporary structures consisting of huts with asbestos covering.

The demolition operation was carried out by concerned area officers, BDA task force and with the assistance of local police. Incidentally, this is the third demolition drive undertaken by BDA in the past one week. On September 22, BDA had recovered Rs 3.4 crores of property by razing to ground illegal sheds and shops at Indiranagar II stage.
